A dark story about two former lovers who reunite in a cheap hotel room in the Mojave Desert. Eddie is a transient presence in and out of May’s life and together they represent a co-dependent, toxic yet magnetic pair sorting through the emotional tumult of their lives in a constant power struggle. The old man contributes to their story from an insider’s perspective while Martin witnesses the story unfold without means to stop it.
Sam Shepard’s Fool For Love was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was written during Shepard’s own personal struggles with relationships.
