Fool for Love
DIRECTED BY FORREST ATTAWAY

STARRING JASON MILLER, AMY KELLY, CURTIS SMITH, & BOB ELLIOT


Winner of the Obie Award. A critical and popular success, this masterfully constructed work brings searing intensity and rare theatrical excitement to its probing, yet sharply humorous study of love, hate and the dying myths of the Old West. "Sam Shepard's purest and most beautiful play." NY Daily News. "It is as mysterious and unsettlingnow you see it, now you don'tas spare and, incidentally, as funny as anything he has ever done." The New Yorker. "FOOL FOR LOVE is certainly one of the best plays of our time. FOOL FOR LOVE may very well be one of the great plays of the late twentieth century." BackStage. "a powerful addition to Shepard's impressive output." Variety.

The scene is a stark motel room at the edge of the Mojave Desert. May, a disheveled young woman, sits dejectedly on a rumpled bed while Eddie, a rough-spoken rodeo performer, crouches in a corner fiddling with his riding gear. When he attempts to console May, who is distressed by Eddie's frequent absences and love affairs, she seems, at first, to softenbut then she suddenly attacks him. As the recriminations pour out, and the action becomes, at times, physically violent, the desperate nature of their relationship becomes apparentthey cannot get along with, or without, one another, yet neither can subdue their burning passion. The poignancy of their situation is pointed out by the play's two other characters: a hapless young man who stops by to take May to the movies and becomes the butt of Eddie's funniest yet most humiliating jokes; and a ghostly old man who sits in a rocking chair at the side of the stage, sipping whiskey and commenting wryly on what he observes. Eventually May and Eddie tire of their struggle and embracebut it is evident that the respite is temporary and that their love, the curse of the past which haunts them, will remain forever damned and hopeless.
