Last chance to catch ‘An Enemy’

PlayMakers Repertory Company’s production of Henrik Ibsen’s dramatic masterpiece “An Enemy of the People,” in a searing adaptation by Arthur Miller ends Sunday, March 15.

When a man discovers an environmental threat to his community, challenged by city fathers and fellow citizens more concerned with the financial health of the town than its physical well-being, he is forced to stand alone, courageously exposing corruption and lies threatening to destroy the home he loves. A dramatic classic from two masters - Ibsen in the 1880s, then re-told in the 1950s by Arthur Miller exploring politically-charged topics such as how environmental issues flow into public disputes, how money begets morality and the cost of free expression.
