Paragon Springs

Fall 2023 production

paragon springs

based on the book "an enemy  of the people" by Henrik ibsen

It is 1926 in the American heartland, and the famed “healing waters” of Paragon Springs have been mysteriously poisoned. Now, the town’s foremost citizen-crusader, Dr. Thomas Stockman, is determined to know the truth behind this tragedy, no matter the cost. In this vibrant, often funny and highly theatrical re-imagining of Ibsen’s “An Enemy of the People,” Steven Dietz puts the lure of capitalism and the greed of small-town self-interest squarely on trial.
