14 Pews presents The Fever

14 Pews will present their first theatrical production, The Fever, by the Obie-winning playwright Wallace Shawn. The one-man play explores what is going on through the mind of a man as he writhes in pain and disgust, shivering through what remains of the hot night on the cold tiles of the bathroom floor in his electricity-bereft hotel room. He muses on his own privileged life and tries to put into words the feelings that explode when an inward-looking aesthete meets the brutal world and sees it for what it is, and sees himself as a collaborator against the poor.

Most of the performances of The Fever will be held a luxury suite at the elegant La Colombe D’Or Hotel, honoring how the playwright originally wanted the play to be performed - in front of no more than 20 people. However, Monday nights will be Industry Night, where people can Pay-What-They-Can and will be performed at 14 Pews.
