TELL YOUR FRIENDS
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. (dramatist.com)
Socially Awkward Productions presentation of Fool for Love attempts to convey the rawness and intensity of Sam Shepard's masterpiece through guttural and emotional explosive performances all contained within the small confines of the Black Box Studios 30 seat theater. Audience members are given a voyeuristic front row seat as Eddie and May wrangle with their passions and reconcile their histories mere feet away.
Critical Praise of Sam Shepard's writing:
"Sam Shepard's purest and most beautiful play." NY Daily News
"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
