There were many memorable shows this past summer, but none more fascinating than The Best of Enemies which was named the “Best Drama” in our 2011 season roundup. We called it “timely, topical, and intellectually stimulating.” Our full review gives all the details of this fine production.

We are delighted to welcome back this unusual story of a friendship that defied the odds. It will be performed on the main stage of Barrington Stage Company from October 5 to October 16. The Best of Enemies received its world premiere on that stage this past July 21 through August 6.

“The Best of Enemies broke all box office records for a Mainstage play in our 17 year history. But many people in the Berkshire community were not able to see this powerful new play because of its limited summer run so we’re delighted to be able to offer this fall once again.” – Julianne Boyd, Artistic Director
