By Henrik Ibsen

In A Version by Florian Borchmeyer and Thomas Ostermeier

New English Adaptation by Branden Jacob-Jenkins


On Broadway at a theater to be announced


A battle rages in the city.  The drinking water is contaminated but – never mind the opinion of a local expert – there’s a tourism industry to protect.  Factions form: to tell or not to tell?  Studded with contemporary music references, Ostermeier’s production brings Ibsen’s dark satire to a boil – and, with help from the people, a solitary whistleblower to his knees. Written by MacArthur “Genius” Fellow, a Pulitzer Prize-finalist and a recipient of Yale’s Windham-Campbell Prize for Drama, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins. Directed by Thomas Ostermeier (Nora, Hedda Gabler, Die Ehe der Maria Braun)
