Saturday arts pick: Capital T Theatre’s “Fool for Love”

Capital T Theatre brings Sam Shepard’s best-known work to the stage in a new production starring Joey Hood and Molly Karrasch.

Funny, urgent and tender, “Fool for Love” finds Eddie returning after a long absence to reclaim May, his lover since high school. Though she determined to make a fresh start, May’s efforts  are undermined by Eddie’s attempts to drag her back into the life from which she has escaped.

In a bleak motel on the edge of the Mojave desert the lovers long to be together — but the sorted truth of their past is more than they can overcome.

“Fool for Love” 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays through Nov. 22, Hyde Park Theatre, 511 W. 43rd St. www.capitalt.org
