The Nevada Conservatory Theatre at UNLV opens its first production of the 2010-11 season with Sam Shepard's "Fool For Love," directed by Michael Lugering, at 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 17 in the Judy Bayley Theatre. This play is for mature audiences only.
The scene is a stark motel room at the edge of the Mojave Desert where May and Eddie confront each other. As recriminations pour out, and the action becomes at times physically violent, the desperate nature of their relationship becomes apparent--they cannot get along with, or without, one another, yet neither can subdue their burning passion.
The cast includes Lauren T. Mack as May, Alan Dronek as Eddie, Jordan Bondurant as Martin, and Michael Tylo as The Old Man.
Performances are September 17, 18, 23, 24 and 25 at 8 p.m. and September 19 and 26 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20-$30 and on sale at the UNLV Performing Arts Center Box Office. Special rates are available for senior citizens; students; military; handicapped; UNLV students, faculty and staff; and groups of 15 or more. Performing Arts Center Box Office hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The box office may be reached by calling 895-ARTS (2787).
