The Park Avenue Armory has announced the fourth commissioned work in its Social Distance Hall series: the world premiere of Enemy of the People, written by Henrik Ibsen, conceived and directed by Robert Icke and starring Emmy award-winning actor Ann Dowd in all the roles. The production will run June 22-July 25.

The play centers on a small former manufacturing town that has been revitalized as a resort destination due to its natural hot springs. When a scientist, who is the sister of the town’s Mayor, finds that the water is contaminated and the baths must be shut down, a democratic society confronts, in public and in private, a complex ethical crisis. The audience, sitting in pods of friends or family, will be invited to vote at critical moments of the story – and the majority vote will determine the play’s direction at each juncture.

Dowd received an Emmy Award for her work as Aunt Lydia on “The Handmaid’s Tale” and received an Emmy nomination for her work on “The Leftovers.” Her New York stage credits include “The Seagull,” “Taking Sides,” “Candida” and “Night Is a Room.”
