Carolina Performing Arts presents Berlin’s esteemed Schaubühne theater’s radically revised adaptation of An Enemy of the People, Ibsen’s potent 1882 drama about individual and social responsibility. Performed in German with English subtitles, the play tells the story of a city whose water is contaminated. Two brothers, the town’s doctor and mayor, line up on opposite sides of a war pitting money and politics against the health and safety of the town.
Enjoy multiple small plate creations, featuring locally raised pork from Hickory Nut Gap and Sharp Family Farms at The Root Cellar in Pittsboro for their 7th Annual Porkapalooza! Local beer from House of Hops, live music on the patio, cornhole and other games for all ages.
