ROMAN FEVER
Adapted for the stage by Hugh Leonard from the short story by Edith Wharton


Starring Karen Ardiff and Maria Tecce
Directed by Michael James Ford


In the warm glow of an Italian afternoon in 1930, two wealthy American widows sit on the terrace of a restaurant overlooking the ancient wonders of Rome. They reminisce about their past friendship and remember a previous visit to the city when they were both young and in love. Now their hopes rest with the prospects of their unmarried daughters.

As the sun sets on the Coliseum, bitter jealousies come to light and age-old secrets are revealed.

Roman Fever is a beautifully observed comedy of manners with a savage sting in the tail. It is adapted for the stage by Hugh Leonard from the acclaimed short story by the great American writer Edith Wharton.
