fool for love

by Sam Shepard. Currently on a Bats.

and good, too. This wasn't my must-see of the year, but it was well worth the night out (and in winter, that is saying something).

I don't think this play is an easy one to act in. The themes are treated well, and there are some good laughs, but the overall effect is dark. Consequently the actors have my respect for their generous performance. They pull it off really well.

For me, it was the plot that really won. It develops the characters and puts them into their context beautifully, which is needed for the material. Just a hint of super-realism to make it more than just kitchen-sick drama.

Details (and probably reviews) here.
