A benefit for Revolution Books
Friday Dec. 14, 7:30 pm
performed by David Shapiro
1655 W. Cortland Ave. Chicago, IL
Chicago Reader critic Justin Hayford wrote of THE FEVER: "It's a wickedly difficult monologue in which a man of privileged upbringing stands onstage for an hour and a half, explaining how he's confronted the atrocities perpetrated in 'poor countries' but remaining unable to process the experience. The difficulty of this play lies in its potential to degenerate into an indulgent white-liberal guilt trip. Luckily Shapiro... appreciates the complexity of Shawn's text, the subtlety of its emotional landscape, and perhaps most important its abundance of ironic humor."
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 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!
