Fool For Love at Found111 starring Adam Rothenberg and Lydia Wilson
Sam Shepard's play revived at Found111.
A new production of Sam Shepard's play Fool For Love will run at Found111, a fringe performance space in central London, from 26 October to 17 December with an official opening on 31 October at 7.30pm.
Emily Dobbs Productions has announced that Fool For Love will be the final show at Found111 following previous productions of The Dazzle, Bug and Unfaithful. It will once again be directed by Simon Evans.
"Confined to a run-down motel room Eddie and May spit truth and lies at each other as they fight for a love that they can’t live with, or without. Past, present and reality collide in this searingly funny, dark portrayal of love, loss and identity set against the stark backdrop of the Mojave Desert."
The cast will include Adam Rothenberg in his London stage debut, opposite Olivier award-nominated Lydia Wilson. The pair have previously worked together on BBC1’s hit detective series, "Ripper Street". Rothenberg's stage credits include the Kennedy Centre’s A Streetcar Named Desire. Lydia was nominated for the Best Supporting Actress Olivier as Kate Middleton in Rupert Goold’s King Charles III at the Almeida, a role which she went on to play in the West End and on Broadway. They will be joined by Joe McGann and Luke Neal.
Sam Shepard is a Pulitzer Prize-winning American playwright who ranks as one of America’s most celebrated dramatists. He has written nearly 50 plays and has seen his work produced in venues ranging from Greenwich Village coffee shops to regional professional and community theatres, from college campuses to Broadway and the West End.
Found111 is a new performance space in the old Central St Martin's building at 111 Charing Cross Road. It is currently being run by Emily Dobbs and is "a space for exciting theatre in a unique site specific environment in the heart of Soho."
