Reviews for the show:
‘entertaining and imaginatively experimental adaptation. There is little wonder that it is the first UK production of Ibsen to win the prestigious Ibsen Scholarship.’ playstosee.com
‘reinventing it for a contemporary audience. The ‘public meeting’ scenario of the second half was a masterstroke.’ Bristol Post
‘Manson Jones’ writing and direction serve the themes of the play well as do the characters, with Sarah Malin as a strong Dr Stockmann and Rupert Holliday Evans vaguely inscrutable as Mayor Peter Stockmann’ The Stage

Nobody Likes A DoGooder
Our new interactive adaptation of Ibsen’s masterpiece is transported to present day Cornwall in the heart of a close-knit community. Dr Stockmann and her brother the Mayor, have founded a Co-Operative Health Spa to help regenerate the town. When she discovers that the health of the planet is threatened by one of their business deals, the Doctor assumes everyone will want to put things right. It’s a no brainer right? Wrong.
GIVE PEOPLE A LITTLE BIT OF POWER AND THEY ABANDON THEIR PRINCIPLES BY THE ARMFUL
Sister and brother discover that they are bound by blood and divided by philosophy.
At the public meeting, where the cast are joined by our chorus of local people, whose voices will be heard? Who is right? You the audience decide, and the cast perform the ending that you choose.
