By Sam Shepard Directed by D.B. Schroeder
May and Eddie have a past, ever since high school. Between an old man’s tales, and the arrival of a “man” this night in a run down motel sheds a burning light on the lengths we will go to for love.
“Sam Shepard’s purest and most beautiful play.” —NY Daily News. “It is as mysterious and unsettling—now you see it, now you don’t—as spare and, incidentally, as funny as anything he has ever done.” —The New Yorker. “FOOL FOR LOVE is certainly one of the best plays of our time. FOOL FOR LOVE may very well be one of the great plays of the late twentieth century.” —BackStage.
This production contains adult language and themes.
Featuring Jonathan Davidson, Krista Schafer Ewbank, Lindel Salow and Joshua Brown.

Ticketing and seating policies:
GENERAL ADMISSION – Because our seating configuration changes with each show, we do not sell specific seats. While our patrons are generally friendly and often willing to shift down to make a pair out of two orphan seats in the same row, there may be no easy way to get you together if we are sold out and the empty seats are spread throughout the theatre. At Open Book our doors open 30 minutes before show time. Come early, pick your seats, and relax. The later you arrive the more likely you are to not be able to sit with your party.
ACCESSIBILITY – Our building is ADA compliant and completely handicapped accessible. Please let our box office staff know if you need handicapped seating. Our chairs are removable and can allow for you to stay in a wheelchair, if desired.
LATE ARRIVALS will be seated at the discretion of the house manager.
PLEASE DON’T WEAR STRONG SCENTS to the theatre, as a courtesy to the other patrons.
NO REFUNDS – tickets CAN be transferred or exchanged BEFORE your scheduled performance. Call the Box Office (734 288-7753) for more information.
RESERVED (but unpaid) TICKET POLICY -if you haven’t paid for your tickets 15 minutes before curtain, and we have people waiting… we will release them and sell them to someone who is waiting. (This can be avoided by paying in advance by phone or online. If your ticket has been paid for we will not release it).
