The poster artwork by Oliver Rosser for Feast Creative sees Matt Smith pelted with paint (or oil?). In the play, Matt Smith takes the role of Thomas Stockmann, a doctor and medical officer who discovers that the public baths in his home spa town are contaminated. When he decides to go public with his findings to demand that the council sorts out the problem, he faces intense opposition as it threatens the livelihood of his town, and is declared a public enemy.

In Ostermeier’s production, Stockmann’s tirade at a public assembly leads to him being pelted by his fellow townsfolk.
