BROTHERS KEEPER: Siblings face off in 'An Enemy of the People,' coming to The Pear Theatre.

This enduring tale of an early whistleblower explores the perennial war between the press and politicians—a theme as pertinent today as it was when Henrik Ibsen finished the play in 1882. The work has since been adapted by Rebecca Lenkiewicz. An Enemy of the People recounts the story of a scientist and his brother, a local politician, who come to a grave disagreement over just what ought to be done about a shocking report concerning their town’s natural springs. This production, by the Pear Theatre, runs through Nov. 12.
