Fool for Love by Sam Shepard
After a long absence, Eddie has traveled 2,480 miles to reclaim May, his lover since high school. May’s efforts to make a fresh start are undermined by Eddie’s attempts to drag her back into the life from which she has escaped. In a stark motel on the edge of the Mojave desert the lovers long to be together but find no solace in each other’s arms.
What is arguably Pulitzer and Oscar Award-winning writer/actor Shepard’s best-known play, “Fool for Love” is a glimpse of the dark side of life in the West and an alternately tender and violent portrait of two lovers haunted by the sins of their past.
