Fool for Love


Fool for Love

26 Oct – 17 Dec

Following the critically acclaimed smash hit productions of The Dazzle, Bug and Unfaithful, Emily Dobbs Productions is excited to present Fool for Love, the thrilling final show at Found111, “London’s most fashionable pop-up theatre” – Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard.

Passionate and explosive, Fool For Love, by multi award-winning playwright  Sam Shepard (Buried Child, True West) , stars New Jersey-born Adam Rothenberg(Ripper Street, A Streetcar Named Desire), making his eagerly awaited London stage debut, and Olivier award-nominated Lydia Wilson (King Charles III, Blasted, Star Trek Beyond). The cast also includes Joe McGann and Luke Neal.

Confined to a run-down motel room Eddie and May spit truth and lies at each other as they fight for a love that they can’t live with, or without. Past, present and reality collide in this searingly funny, dark portrayal of love, loss and identity set against the stark backdrop of the Mojave Desert.
