The second production of Theatre USA’s 2015-2016 season and the highlight of its 50th anniversary will open at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 13, in the Laidlaw Performing Arts Center with an adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s classic, “An Enemy of the People.”

Ibsen’s tale follows the story of Dr. Thomas Stockmann and his discovery that the town’s new spa is poisoned. His efforts to close it runs into skepticism and disbelief as the townspeople weigh safety versus potential profits.
