On Thursday, September 6, 2007, KNOW Theatre will preview Sam Shepard's play Fool For Love to a pay-what-you-can audience at the Binghamton City Stage, 74 Carroll Street, Binghamton, NY. This new audience-building approach of the KNOW Theatre company will be available to Binghamton Audiences throughout the season. For people who rarely can attend theatre, this is an opportunity to do so. Reservations are requested for all performances.
KNOW Theatre will officially open its 2007-2008 Season with Fool For Love by Sam Shepard on Saturday, September 7, 2007. The play will be directed by New York director James B. Nicola. Michael Shephard is cast as Eddie, a cowboy of the southwest, with Dori May Ganisin as May, his tortured life-long love. Mickey Ray and David Merrell complete the cast.
Eddie and May should never be together, but they cannot get along with, or without, one another, yet neither can subdue their burning passion. The poignancy of their situation is pointed out by the play's two other characters: a would-be suitor and a ghostly old man. It is evident that their love, the curse of the past which haunts them, will remain forever damned and hopeless
"Fool for Love" will also be performed on September 8, 9, 14, 15, 16 with all performances at 8:00 PM except Sunday, September 16 when it will be at 3:00 PM.. Tickets: Adults $15.00; Students/Seniors: $12.00
FOR RESERVATIONS CALL 724-4341.
Winner of the Obie Award.--A critical and popular success, this masterfully constructed work brings searing intensity and rare theatrical excitement to its probing, yet sharply humorous study of love, hate and the dying myths of the Old West. "…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. "…a powerful addition to Shepard's impressive output." —Variety.
