Fool For Love
October 11-28, 2018 / Thursday - Saturday at 8:00pm; Sundays at 6:00pm
Through searing truth and dark humor, Fool for Love shows the story of two people who just can't live without each other whether they like it or not. May is hiding out at an old motel in the Mojave Desert. Eddie, an old flame and childhood friend, finds her there and threatens to drag her back into the life from which she had fled. Reality and dream; truth and lies; past and present mingle in an explosive, emotional experience.
Winner of the Obie Award.
With: Kasey O'Barr, Candace Brooke, Alex Van, & Philip Mertz
"Mr. Shepard, who left this world too soon in 2017, was both an actor and a Pulitzer-winning playwright... his plays often have a dreamlike quality and a wacky sexual abandon that I find hypnotic... Ms. Brooke and Mr. O’Barr are fiery, funny, sexy, and a little crazy. They are indeed fools for love. The two actors are talented and magnetic and absolutely nail their characters. You can’t take your eyes off them... Director McGowen is flawless here—and invisible. I love it that Pinch ‘N’ Ouch is doing Albee and Shepard and other greats now. Their intimate space has become a favorite of mine; I’m sure the late Mr. Shepard himself would enjoy this space and these actors." - Manning Harris, Atlanta InTown Paper (read more)
