Matt Smith returns to West End with An Enemy of the People



The play will be held at the Duke of York's Theatre.

Get ready for an exciting theatrical experience because the critically acclaimed play, An Enemy of the People, is coming to London. And if that wasn't news enough, hear this: the talented Matt Smith – of The Crown and Doctor Who-fame – will be taking over the stage at Duke of York's Theatre.

Taking place from 6 February until 6 April 2024, this play will mark Matt's return to the West End stage after three years. His last appearance was at The Old Vic Theatre in 2021, making this upcoming performance all the more anticipated. 

Matt will star as Dr. Stockmann in this classic play by Henrik Ibsen, which gets a bold reimagining by celebrated director Thomas Ostermeier. The play promises a thought-provoking exploration of truth, power, and money in society. 

The premise of An Enemy of the People revolves around Dr. Stockmann as he stumbles upon an unbelievable discovery concerning the healing properties of the local baths. With the future of the entire town hanging by a thread, his revelation soon becomes a pivotal moment.

However, there's a catch. Those who have the most to lose are unwilling to accept his word. As the battle for truth unfolds, it becomes evident that the issue extends far beyond contaminated water. 

While further cast details of An Enemy of the People are yet to be announced, the buzz surrounding the project already indicates that it's going to be something special. And with Matt already on the roaster, we know it's going to be a crowd-pleaser. 

With a contemporary twist on a timeless classic, this production promises to be a West End highlight of 2024. Tickets for this extraordinary experience start at just £23, making it accessible to a wide range of audiences.
