There's political fervor in the air these days. Political commentators and talking heads drone on about how the parties have never been so polarized, so divided right and left. Well, the Caldwell Theater's latest play will remind a new generation that political strife is not new. It also will warn them about the repercussions of being swept up and carried away by polemic rhetoric. After the Revolution tells the story of the Joseph family and their proud patriarch, a Marxist who refused to "name names" during the era of McCarthyism. It previews at 2 p.m. Sunday and runs until November 20 at Caldwell Theater (7901 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton). Showtimes are 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday, with some 8 p.m. performances on select Tuesdays. Tickets cost $27 to $50, $10 if you're a student.

Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 16. Continues through Nov. 20, 2011
