Further InformationThe cast mainly consisted of senior students from Nanjing Arts College. The Singing Team: class of 2002. Produced in commemoration of Ibsen´s death. Despription of the play: The Affair Of «An Enemy Of The People» adopts the frame of ‘play within a play´. It is about several university students who grew up on the side of Huaihe River. When these university students come back home during their summer vacation, they find out that the Huaihe River is polluted badly and they realize how serious the pollution is in their hometown. They decide to perform Ibsen´s play An Enemy of the People in order to arouse the local people´s consciousness of bringing the pollution under control. At the same time, they barge up against the same situation in An Enemy of the People! Their relatives and friends want to stop them because they all benefit from the local factories. These university students realize that these self-seeking men who cannot see beyond one´s nose not only destroy the environment that people rely on but also erode human spirit. The whole play portrays a group of optimistic young people in China who are concerned with urgent social problems. The play calls for Chinese people to protect our environment - "human beings have only one Earth"! The performance brings about audience´s sympathy and support.
