Sod House Theater is excited to present a new, bluegrass-infused adaptation of An Enemy of the People, by Henrik Ibsen, which will tour to nine communities in Minnesota this summer. Known for their fantastically fun productions, Sod House will join forces with local talent and audiences to celebrate summer and community through the experience of live, site-specific theater. Original music by Brian Laidlaw and Ashley Hanson. A community workshop process informed the lyrics of the songs, which were based on songwriting workshops around the state.

The classic play examines how a community responds when a local doctor threatens to expose that the water it relies upon for tourism is being poisoned.  It questions how far a community will go protect their town’s secret in order to avoid financial ruin. The play will be performed at site specific locations throughout the city and feature interactive activities including a live vote during the show.

July 25 – August 26 in Hallock, Taylors Falls, Mankato, Fairmont, Blue Earth, Red Wing, Lake Benton, Pipestone, Virginia, and Ely
