    Fool For Love

    A drama by Sam Shepard; Directed by Bridget Kathleen O’Leary

    Eddie stalks May two thousand four hundred and eighty miles to a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave desert in Sam Shepard's classic, Fool for Love. In this ugly and claustrophobic place, lust turns to violence as wild and buried passions are unearthed. Dark secrets are revealed in an explosive story of gripping jealousy, brutal betrayal, and the deepest kind of love. Play contains mature sexual themes.

    ...O'Leary's production of Fool for Love transforms the black-box theater...into a grimy, grotty pit of a motel room, then lets the characters loose in this cage...
    "...it's a quick trip to Shepardville, in good trustworthy hands, with people who clearly know the territory well."
    -Louise Kennedy, The Boston Globe

    “…Fischer and Smith are a terrific pairing: not a moment goes by when the chemistry between the two isn’t charged to the point of incipient lightning.”
    -Kilian Melloy, EdgeBoston.com

    “…Fool for Love has a bouncing-off-the-cardboard-walls energy that's hard to resist.”
    -Carolyn Clay, The Boston Phoenix
