Three dream plays inspired by true events. An Israeli soldier meets a mysterious Palestinian woman in the Rafah Zoo. A Palestinian father reveals to a young Israeli their shared history. A bookish Iraqi bird collector tells of his conscription into Saddam’s army. Through magic realism and surprising humor, The Fever Chart: Three Visions of the Middle East reaches out like prophecy, challenging us to envision peace during the holiday season.
