West End Revival of Fool for Love???
Date: 25 May 2005
The Almeida has nabbed Lindsay Posner for back-to-back productions this autumn – the European premiere of David Mamet’s Romance and Richard Bean’s new version of Moliere’s The Hypochondriac (See Today’s News) – but the north London theatre may not be the only thing keeping the director busy towards the end of the year. We hear Posner may also soon be reviving 1980’s Fool for Love for the West End. The 90-minute play by Sam Shepard - whose latest, The Late Henry Moss, also coincidentally features in the Almeida season, though not directed by Posner – recounts a painful love story. In a seedy motel room in southern California, May and Eddie go back beyond their adult lives, back to the legacy of their parents and their parents before. As they challenge each other's versions of events, what emerges through broken images and scraps of remembered colours is a childhood which defines the rest of their lives.
