A traveller from a privileged background visits an impoverished foreign country and suddenly becomes ill. As her temperature begins to rise, she becomes emotionally unsettled and contemplates with lacerating frankness the impact her life has had on the world.
The Fever turns up the heat on individual responsibility and the balance of power. Can we, should we, make the world a fairer place?
Clare Higgins delivers The Fever, Wallace Shawn’s seminal play.
