The Fever Chart (2010)
Pilot Theatre and York Theatre Royal Present The Fever Chart: Three Visions of the Middle East
In the Autumn of 2010 Pilot Theatre, together with York Theatre Royal, brought to life the stirring work of Naomi Wallace with their production of her play, The Fever Chart.
With three stories set in different locations around the Middle East, the muscular and poetic writing of Wallace finds beauty in the grotesque, exploring political tensions by grounding them in the human issues of love, life and death.
“this tough, humane, dreamlike plays linger in the mind.” Financial Times
“the acting is exemplary…writer, Naomi Wallace has done well to prise such emotively complex issues from their shells.” The Guardian
“Pilot Theatre’s directors create an appropriate atmosphere for each vision. The tension evolves gradually. The revelations surprise rather than shock, which is just as it should be.” The Stage
“undeniably powerful production” British Theatre Guide
