Director Janice Honeyman will direct Fool for Love in her homecoming production at the Market Theatre. Janice’s association with the Market dates back to the 70’s. Over the years she has worked on productions like Who’s Afraid of Virginia WolfNothing But The TruthMissing and many others. She is joined on her return by a stellar cast Zane Meas, Langley Kirkwood, Kate Liquorish and Paka Zwedala.

Sam Shepard, in his mid-eighties classic, Fool for Love, draws us mercilessly into the hot and gritty epicentre of a relentless emotional conflict. In the dust-dry desolation of the Mojave Desert, we are hauled onto the battlefield of a love-hate combat.

Eddie and May are seemingly psychologically chained together, caught in a motel room, entrapped in their own prison-cell of pain and passion. The play pinpoints the merging of memories and present moments, emotional fantasy and harsh, immediate reality, to create a situation charged with electricity between two damaged people.

Shepard’s Fool for Love premiered in 1983 at the Magic Theatre in San Francisco, where he was the playwright-in-residence. The play was a finalist for the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Zane Meas makes a come back to the stage playing the old Man. Award-winning actress Kate Liquorish will portray May. Langley Kirkwood returns to the Market after 20 years as Eddie and to complete this incredibly talented cast is Paka Zwedala playing May’s suitor Martin.

This is  70 minutes of engaging, compelling, human and comic drama by one of America’s most celebrated playwrights.

Fool for Love will have its Johannesburg premier at the Market Theatre from 17 August – 9 September 2018
