1983-84 ORIGINAL POSTER FROM FIRST NY PRODUCTION OF SAM SHEPARD'S PLAY "A FOOL FOR LOVE"

New Sale Price: $60 No PayPal payments or checks. Don't ask. The Buyer will appear in person with proper ID and pay in CASH ONLY. This old poster comes from a downtown Baton Rouge Estate.

This collectible and disappearing version of the ORIGINAL poster for Shepard's 1983 New York production of "Fool For "Love" is an ORIGINAL and well-framed. This production starred Kathy Baker and Ed Harris. Illustrated with the famous Elvis Presley photo. It was first performed at the Magic Theatre in San Francisco on February 8, 1983 with Kathy Baker as May and Ed Harris as Eddie. It had its New York City premiere at the Circle Repertory Theatre on May 26, 1983, with the same cast before later transferring to the Douglas Fairbanks Theatre.

Synopsis---
Through searing truth and dark humor, Fool for Love shows the story of two people who just can't live without each other whether they like it or not. May is hiding out at an old motel in the Mojave Desert. Eddie, an old flame and childhood friend, finds her there and threatens to drag her back into the life from which she had fled. Reality and dream; truth and lies; past and present mingle in an explosive, emotional experience.


Sam Shepard --
Shepard wrote Fool for Love shortly after breaking up with his wife O-Lan. In a letter to his friend and virtuoso collaborator, Joe Chaikin, Shepard described his play as "the outcome of all this tumultuous feeling I've been going through this past year...it's a very emotional play and in some ways embarrassing for me to witness but somehow necessary at the same time."

MEASUREMENTS: The poster measures 22" x 17" with NO deficits! Check around -- these EARLY originals ain't around much anymore! This is NOT a reprint from the later productions. If you have any specific questions, please let me know.
