Event description

Description

Performances will run on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Monday at 7pm with a Sunday matinee at 3pm from October 18- November 12th. This material is for MATURE AUDIENCES.

Running time is currently expected to be under 2 hours.

Through searing truth and dark humor, Fool for Love shows the story of two people who just can't live without each other whether they like it or not. May is hiding out at an old motel in the Mojave Desert. Eddie, an old flame and childhood friend, finds her there and threatens to drag her back into the life from which she had fled. Reality and dream; truth and lies; past and present mingle in an explosive, emotional experience.

Sam Shepard wrote Fool for Love shortly after breaking up with his wife O-Lan. In a letter to his friend and virtuoso collaborator, Joe Chaikin, Shepard described his play as "the outcome of all this tumultuous feeling I've been going through this past year…it's a very emotional play and in some ways embarrassing for me to witness but somehow necessary at the same time."

All we ask is if you need to cancel, that you do so others may secure a seat. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.
