A perfect blend of gritty, realistic Sam Shepard goodness, and creative, impulsive staging/performance, Vespertine Productions’ “Fool For Love” is a wonderful production, that should definitely be added to your list of Must-See’s for the Fringe.
The performances truly shine in this production, with a small cast of talented and clearly dedicated folks who soak up every ounce of passion from Shepard’s script, and then wring it out of each other throughout the course of the play.
The simple, Fringe-esque set is surprisingly effective, and the use of projections in the stead of a live actor for the Old Man is a wise choice, and extremely well executed.
If you’re wondering how a Sam Shepard play should be produced, look no further. See this play.
