Chicago Revolution Books Presents a Program on:


Do we need a revolution and a radically different society? What is happening every day-what this system does to people, day in, day out-here and all over the world, cries out: YES, WE DO.

Is revolution really possible in a country like the U.S.? YES, IT IS.

Is there actually a strategy and method for approaching how to make such a revolution? YES, THERE IS.

Is there a group that is organized on the basis of that strategy and method, is working for such a revolution and could lead that revolution when the time is right? YES, AGAIN.

Come hear some straight talk about these vital questions by speakers representing the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA. Then dig into this. Questions and answers on: making revolution in the U.S.A.

A special one-night-only performance of


performed by David Shapiro

January 26, Monday, 7 PM
Chopin Theater, 1543 W. Division St., Chicago
A Benefit for Revolution Books Chicago

Tickets $20

Followed by a Reception

When actor David Shapiro introduced THE FEVER to Chicago in 1995, Wallace Shawn said,
"I wish I could have done it this way, but I didn't know how."

From an article on THE FEVER in American Theatre, September, 1997:

"Recalling the onset of illness in a Third World hotel bathroom, the narrator tells about his privileged childhood, his elitist adulthood, and his gradual realization that he must share responsibility for his society's immorality. The contrasts between poverty and privilege, between torture and tenderness, between injustice and indulgence don't torment the speaker so much as his sudden awareness that each moment of his pleasure is purchased at the price of someone else's pain. Shawn's insistent questions-without the slightest taint of narcissism or self-righteousness-reduce moral issues to their essence, the way they affect our lives. Why do we believe this? Why do we behave this way? You can react to Shawn's play in one of two ways-you can get angry, or you can reevaluate your life."

To reserve and purchase tickets with credit card, call 773-489-0930.
