Fool For Love

by Sam Shepard

Presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service

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 to soften at first, 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.  We also meet a hapless young man who stops by to take May to the movies, and a ghostly old man who sits in a rocking chair at the side of the stage, sipping whiskey and commenting on what he observes.
