Manhattan Theatre Club presents Sam Shepard's classic play, starring Sam Rockwell and Nina Arianda; former lovers holed up in a seedy motel unpack deep, dark secrets and desires of their tangled relationship. More…
May and Eddie have both been fools in and out of love. Beaten down by ill-fated love and a ruthless struggle for identity, can they ultimately live with, or without, each other? Tony Award winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur) and Sam Rockwell bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard's landmark myth of the new Wild West. A remount of the 2014 Williamstown Theatre Festival production.
