JDX - a public enemy is the tale of one man standing against a (social and political) majority. A physician discovers that the water in the new thermal baths is heavily polluted. His brother, the city mayor, refuses to take steps because of the possible major financial consequences. In the end the doctor is branded a ‘public enemy’ by the people who feel threatened in their prosperity.

The part played by the media and the pitfalls of democracy are exposed at length. In true agitprop style the play points the finger at the total lack of sincerity of a certain kind of democracy, the trickery, lies and intimidation, the deception of the people and their intolerance.

 
The piece was revived just before the 2014 elections and to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the company.
