Enemy of the People
An Enemy of the People is an 1882 play by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. Ibsen wrote it in response to the public outcry against his play Ghosts, which at that time was considered scandalous. Ghosts had challenged the hypocrisy of Victorian morality and was deemed indecent for its veiled references to syphilis. Upon completion of the play, Ibsen wrote to his publisher in Copenhagen, Denmark: "I am still uncertain as to whether I should call it a comedy or a straight drama. It may may many traits of comedy, but it also is based on a serious idea.

Greenbrier Valley Theatre’s Youth Education Program operates with a mission to provide ongoing, inclusive, quality education in theatre and the performing arts.
Each season, GVT’s eclectic programming takes audiences to places near and far, real and imagined. Together, we have traveled the world, from Chicago’s Cook County Jail to a Russian cherry orchard and from a Monte Carlo casino to the memory of Maycomb, Alabama. Through theatre, the Curtain Up! Campaign (previously the Annual Campaign) will bring the world to West Virginia.
