Fool for love

Fool for Love is sordid, cryptic and disturbing, but in a new production of Sam Shepard’s play at Princeton Summer Theater, it’s also riveting...Ude creates a thick sense of tension, with passions flaring just often enough to keep the audience on edge.
— Tim Dunleavy, DC Metro Theater Arts

Winner of multiple Obie Awards, Sam Shepard’s dramedy unfolds in a motel room in the Mojave Desert in which we find the continuously bickering former lovers May and Eddie. There, they unravel their tangled relationship, almost tearing each other apart. A dark exploration into love and family, Fool for Love shows us how our pasts surely come back to haunt us.

I commend Princeton Summer Theater for taking a risk with Fool for Love, and for pulling it off so well.
