Episode 2

Alfred Molina, Adam Godley, Susannah Fielding and Ian Ogilvy star in Ibsen's riveting thriller, directed by Martin Jarvis. What will happen if Stockmann's discovery is made public?

Alfred Molina, Adam Godley, Susannah Fielding and Ian Ogilvy lead an all start cast. Dr Stockmann has discovered the town's spa-baths are contaminated. How will this affect local business interests? Will Stockmann be publicly vilified?

Martin Jarvis directs this new version by Rebecca Lenkiewicz of Henrik Ibsen's dynamic thriller. Will campaigning courage turn into self-righteous fanaticism? Vested interest lives on and this timeless 1882 drama is as up to date now as when it was first performed.
