Alexis Zegerman

Published by Nick Hern Books

5 Male 4 Female

Dr Richard Myers, the great IVF innovator, is virtually a secular saint because of the thousands of babies he has created throughout his career

Now, his family have gathered at his home on Manhattan's Upper West Side to see him receive a lifetime achievement award

It's not long before this fractious group, more accustomed to debate than empathy, fall into dispute once again - over conflicting Thanksgiving memories, polarised opinions on investment banking, and how best to care for their ailing father

And crucially, who will inherit Richard's wealth and his prestigious science institution?

A vivid and thrilling portrait of a brilliantly dysfunctional family, Alexis Zegerman's The Fever Syndrome was first produced at Hampstead Theatre, London, in March 2022, directed by Roxana Silbert
