Fool for Love by Sam ShepardJune 8th-25thThursdays-Saturdays at 7:30pSundays at 3pm. Directed by Andy Hayworth Starring: as EddieDiana Cameron McQueen as May as The Old Man as Martin 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 soften—but 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 apparent—they cannot get along with, or without, one another, yet neither can subdue their burning passion. 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 unsettling—now you see it, now you don't—as 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. Adult – .00 College Student w/ ID – .00 Senior/Military w/ ID – .00
