9/19/2016

The Collective, the theater production company of Concordia University Chicago, presents Henrik Ibsen’s “An Enemy of the People,” adapted by Arthur Miller. The play runs Sept. 30-Oct. 1 and Oct. 7-8 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 2 and 9 at 2 p.m. at the Madison Street Theatre, 1010 Madison St., Oak Park, IL.

What happens when you stand by your truth against the majority? Dr. Stockmann makes a toxic discovery that may endanger the livelihood of his small town. When the Doctor’s brother, the Mayor, finds out, accusations of malice and faulty science threaten to rip the small community apart.

The play is directed by Jason Narvy, associate professor and Chair of the Department of Theater at Concordia University Chicago. Between 1993 and 1999, Narvy portrayed the role of the comic villain “Skull” in more than 300 episodes of Fox Television’s Emmy-nominated “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” and its spin-offs. He is now a Chicago-based actor and director of theater.

The Opening Gala will be Friday, Sept. 30, which will include light refreshments and a post-show discussion.

General admission tickets to “An Enemy of the People” are $15, with discounts available for students, seniors and CUC alumni. Purchase tickets online at CUCenemy.brownpapertickets.com, or by cash or check at the door before show time.
