American Theatre magazine on "The Fever":
"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... You can react to Shawn's play in one of two ways -- you can get angry, or you can reevaluate your life."
When actor David Shapiro introduced "The Fever" to Chicago in 1995, Wallace Shawn said, "I wish I could have done it like David did, but I didn't know how." The Chicago Reader wrote: " of the most memorable off-Loop theater experiences of the 1990s." This production was also performed at New York's La MaMa Theatre.
The cause of Revolution Books:
The $20 ticket will help raise the $3,000 needed by the end of the year to save this irreplaceable bookstore. This is the place people can come to from all over to find the books and engagement about why the world is the way it is and how it can be radically different. Revolution Books is a center of the movement for revolution. We must and can save this bookstore.
