Naomi Wallace’s The Fever Chart: Three Visions of the Middle East makes its appearance at Trafalgar Studios 2 from March 2010, ready to showcase a personal account of conditions in a war zone most of us will never have to face.
The show is to be presented by the Pilot Theatre and the York Theatre Royal and is likely to provide a compelling account of unimaginable conditions across three stories. The Pilot Theatre is an award winning Theatre Company that has presented many plays across the United Kingdom, with critical praise regularly dished out to their shows. As a result, “The Fever Chart” has already received many rave reviews, with Naomi Wallace’s writing getting considerable attention.
The two theatre companies are providing the two directors for the show in the form of Marcus Romer and Katie Posner.
The Fever Chart chronicles three compelling stories set within horrific conditions within the Middle East. As a result, the focus is on the ways in which humanity conducts itself during such times and in such conditions, with themes of political tensions given a grounded approach in the show alongside themes of love, life and death. The show is promising to be a personal account of a world we may never have to face as we witness the harsh realities of war.
Writer Naomi Wallace is an award winning American playwright who partly resides in the Yorkshire Dales. She won the Southern Writers Drama Award for her work, as well as the MacArthur Fellowship, an Obie Award and the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, with plays under her belt that include “The Hearts in America” and “One Flea Spare”. The former is an account of everyday life in which her characters suffer, but the audience is asked to reinterpret the ways in which this happens, whilst the latter looks at the time in which the Black Plague was gripping the nation.
She has also penned poetry and films, with her poem “To Dance a Stony Field” proving to be popular, as well as movies such as “The War Boys” and “Lawn Dogs”.
The Fever Chart makes its anticipated appearance at Trafalgar Studios 2 from Tuesday 9th March 2010 to Saturday 3rd April 2010.
