Fool For Love

by thecustomhouse

I couldn’t sleep, so I stayed up reading Fool For Love by Sam Shepard.  I couldn’t put it down.  I’ve been a fan of his acting for years, but this is the first time I’ve read one of his plays.  Sooo beautiful and so so sad.

This exchange is one of my favorites:
MAY: Okay.  Look.  I don’t understand what you’ve got in your head anymore.  I really don’t.  I don’t get it. Now, you desperetely need me. Now, you can’t live without me. Now, you’ll do anything for me.  Why should I believe it this time?
EDDIE: Because it’s true.
MAY: It was supposed to have been true every time before. Every other time.
