Fool for Love 2/10 & 2/12
Lovers Locked is a Heart-Shaped Box:
a Fool for Love Valentine's Week Show,
Benefiting the Les Turner ALS Foundation
Actors Maureen Muldoon & Paul McComas perform Paul's propulsive adaptation of Fool for Love, Chicago-born master dramatist Sam Shepard's most riveting play. The story of sparring star-crossed lovers "May & Eddie" - a southern spitfire and a brash cowboy who share a mysterious connection - is one of the most compelling and unexpectedly passionate dramas you'll ever witness.
Joined by guitarist Don Gibson plus surprise guests, Maureen and Paul introduce the 45-minute one-act with a half-hour set of Western songs of love and longing.
The show honors the late Shepard in this, his Diamond Jubilee Year (75 years after his birth), and benefits the Chicago-based Les Turner ALS Foundation, which works to combat the dread disease that felled the playwright two years ago.
This is definitely not your parents' Valentines's play! Come and get the fire-and-fury out of the way before the 14th by enjoying this classic, Pulitzer-nominated play on your own, or with your sweetie, or with friends; after all who hasn't been a Fool For Love?
