Lameece Issaq, Omar Metwally, Arian Moayed, and Waleed F. Zuaiter will star in Naomi Wallace's The Fever Chart: Three Visions of the Middle East, to be directed by Jo Bonney, which will be presented as part of The Public Theater's Lab series, April 25-May 11.

The play tells three distinct stories set in different parts of the Middle East, exploring political tensions by grounding them in the human issues of love, life, and death. Wallace is the recipient of the MacArthur "Genius" Fellowship, and her previous plays include One Flea Spare, The Trestle at Pope Lick Creek, and In the Heart of America.

The design team will include Rachel Hauck (set), Ilona Somogyi (costumes), and Lap Chi Chu (lighting). Bonney's numerous directing credits include All That I Will Ever Be, suburbia, Some Girl(s), A Soldier's Play, The Seven, and Stop Kiss.
