Katherine Stockmann lives in a tight-knit community – she’s woven into the fabric. One day she makes a disturbing discovery: the spa water for which the town is famed is toxic. The community has been built on poison, and the truth must be told. But to her horror, people refuse to believe there’s a problem. What does she do? Does she fight for the truth if it means the loss of income, family, community, identity?

Ibsen’s 1882 masterpiece in a timely new version by Melissa Reeves, with the superb Kate Mulvany as the insider who finds herself out in the cold.
