Considered a true American classic, Sam Shepard's Pulitzer Prize-winning Fool for Love finds a woman named Mae hiding out at an old motel in the Southwest. Eddie, her old flame and childhood friend, shows up and threatens to metaphorically and literally drag her back into the life from which she had fled. Their battle plays out as they trade barbs, heartbreak and painful revelations, taking themselves and audiences on an unforgettable journey from love and attraction to obsession. At once funny and horrific, Fool for Love is widely regarded as Shepard's finest work. Learn More

Honest, poignant, inspirational, and surprisingly funny, ReEntry is an unflinching look at the lives of Marines returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s about stepping off that plane and coming home, re-entering ones life, family, and country – again.
With dialogue taken directly from interviews with privates and colonels, combat vets and clerks, and one particularly memorable family, ReEntry tells the stories you haven’t heard. It puts politics and Hollywood aside to probe the unvarnished, powerfully personal truths of those who serve and sacrifice.
How do you shift from battlefields to backyard barbecues? What’s the price paid by families when husbands, mothers, sons, and sisters go to war?
