Fool for Love

By Sam Shepard
Directed by Brenna Geffers

The Pulitzer Finalist and winner of the Obie Award for Best New American Play received a fresh, intimate staging at EgoPo.

Love and loathing. Desire and disgust. This is the eternal dance that Eddie and May are powerless to escape. Bound together by a pact from their youth, the two lovers chase each other across the desert, meeting in hotel rooms like atomic particles destined for collision. This 1984 Pulizer Prize Finalist and winner of the Obie Award for Best New American Play offers a searing portrait of the annihilation wreaked on others in the name of love.

Featuring: Julianna Zinkel, Jered McLenigan, Steven Wright, and Joe Canuso.
