It's a tragic but increasingly familiar tale: A toxic chemical leak endangers a region's water. But the dateline on this story isn't the fracked natural gas fields of Pennsylvania or the Marine base just down the road at Camp Lejeune. Playwright Henrik Ibsen placed his combustible tale, An Enemy of the People, in a small coastal Norway town in 1882. The gloves come off when a medical doctor squares off against a corrupt but popular local politician who also happens to be his brother.

In this new adaptation, playwright Boaz Gaon places the action in modern-day Israel. Something's gone wrong at a local industrial park. The desert region's all-important water supply is threatened, and a conflict within an influential family escalates into a scorched-earth political war. Joseph Megel directs a staged reading of this work on science, politics and individual conscience, prior to its U.S. premiere in January in Washington, D.C. Admission to the 7:30 p.m. show is free; a panel discussion follows the reading. —Byron Woods
