Fool for Love
by Playhouse San Antonio

Jan. 13 - Feb. 05, 2017

 In this Obie-Award winning play, the lines of love and scandal blur in this passionate story of on-again-off-again lovers helplessly branded to one another and hopelessly repeating their destructive past. When May’s attempt at a new life is interrupted by the return of Eddie, her innocent date, Martin, is caught in the fallout, and sparks fly.

Sam Shepard's Fool for Love marks the Cellar Theater directorial debut of The Playhouse’s CEO and Artistic Director, George Green. Fresh off a success with his Russell Hill Rogers debut show, All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914, George is excited to bring this new American classic to life.

“Sam Shepard is a brilliant playwright. He was the Neil LaBute, the Steven Dietz, and the Samuel Hunter of his era. The raw, daring theater that he created in his well-crafted scripts will hold up for many years. When you watch this production, you'll find it hard to believe that it was written over 30 years ago.” - George Green, Director
