Fool for Love

by Sam Shepard


In a stark, low-rent motel room on the edge of the Mojave Desert, Eddie and May love and hate their way through life. Unable to hold on or let go, they battle to keep from drowning together. This Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright’s masterpiece shows the heights and depths that love can take us to, ultimately making fools of us all.

Powerful, compelling, and twisted, this love story is truly gripping … a strong production …”

the perfect setting for the boozy fight … affecting … ”

The story shocks completely … Powerfully directed”

If you like raw emotion …nothing fits the bill more than this production”

Shepard’s allegory for his own loss and love rises above and provides us with an intensely powerful personal drama…”
