Life is a gift. But who can afford it? The Fever is one man’s journey to discover just what life is worth.
A man wakes up in a dark hotel room, in a poor country with no name. Gripped by fever he is consumed with the thought that his wealth makes other people poor. He tells us the most intimate memories of his life, mesmerizing stories of poverty and luxury, of tenderness and brutality. He questions everything about the world and his place in it, and comes to a shocking conclusion.
Crafted by master-storyteller Wallace Shawn (The Princess Bride, My Dinner with Andre, Vanya on 42nd Street), The Fever is an Obie Award winning one-man show, performed by dynamic young actor Zac Boulton, and directed by Anatoly Frusin. Hilarious, provocative and challenging, The Fever will surprise and delight you.
Demolishing the boundary between physical and text-based theatre this production puts our modern world under an entertaining but unsparing microscope, and challenges both actor and audience out of their comfort zones. Are you ready to be shaken up and transported into an environment where your very concept of right and wrong is questioned? Catch The Fever and you’ll never see your life the same way again.
