Martin Jarvis directs Alfred Molina and an all-star cast in Ibsen's thriller.

Radio 4 drama

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?
