Sam Shepard's intense play about a love-hate relationship. Read More >

Fool For Love is set in a desolate motel room on the edge of the Mojave desert, where May and Eddie’s tragic love-hate relationship is played out. This intense, cathartic, bleak play looks at the desires of one generation and the destruction it wreaks in the next.

This production of Fool For Love by Love&Madness Ensemble stars Sadie Frost and Carl Barat. Actress and businesswoman Frost returned to the stage for the first time in over 20 years in Touched… at Trafalgar Studios in 2009. Barat, who makes his stage debut in Fool For Love, is the former guitarist of The Libertines and Dirty Pretty Things. 

Fool For Love is suitable for ages 14+
