Subject: The Rogue Theatre presents THE FEVER

The Rogue Theatre presents Wallace Shawn's The Fever - January 6-22, 2006 (Fri - Sat, 7:30 p.m.; Sun 2:00 p.m.)
A nameless person from a privileged world travels to a country in the midst of civil war. Suddenly ill, the narrator collapses in a hotel bathroom, and confronts an internal chorus of conflicting voices: dreams of comfort, images of violence, accusations of indifference, and cold-blooded arguments in favor of oppression. The central question: what, if anything, is a morally consistent way to live in the world as it is? 

The Fever won the 1991 Obie Award for Best Play, and Booklist called it "a starkly written, harrowing journey into the dark night of the soul."

When Wallace Shawn originally presented the play, he performed it for small audiences in living rooms throughout Manhattan. The Rogue is taking a similar route by performing The Fever in some of Tucson's "living rooms."

Fridays, January 6, 13, and 20, 7:30 p.m., Center for Expressive Arts, 3838 East Ft. Lowell Road, just west of Alvernon
Saturdays, January 7, 14, and 21, 7:30 p.m., Mat Bevel Institute, 530 North Stone Avenue, just north of 6th Street  
Sundays, January 8, 15, and 22, 2:00 p.m., Hotel Congress, 311 East Congress Street, right downtown

All tickets are $17. Call 326-7354 or see for reservations and information. 

The Fever is performed by Joseph McGrath and directed by Cynthia Meier.
