‘Fool for Love’ April 6-7 at WKU

How do we really affect those around us? This is the question posed by a play presented in April by the WKU Department of Theatre & Dance.

WKU's Department of Theatre & Dance will present Fool for Love on April 7-8.

WKU’s Department of Theatre & Dance will present Fool for Love on April 7-8. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at wku.showare.com or by calling the Fine Arts Box Office at (270) 745-3121.

Fool for Love, directed by Caleb Pless, a senior from Memphis, Tennessee, plays at 8 p.m. April 6-7 in The Lab Theatre in WKU’s Gordon Wilson Hall. This play, which was made into a movie in 1985 starring the playwright Sam Shepard and Kim Basinger, examines a pivotal time for May and Eddie, two childhood friends.

Isaac Barnes, a WKU sophomore from Lexington who plays Eddie, has worked hard to relate to his character. “I wouldn’t call my character likable, but he’s honest and he’s lost, and I think that makes him very human,” Barnes said.

As the play explores the crossroads in their life, it focuses on the words and mind of each character. “It has a lot to say about the deep impact our actions have on those close to us,” he said.

Other cast members are Page Brouillette, a freshman from Nashville, Tennessee; Josiah Howlett, a freshman from Lexington; and Bo Vaughn, a junior from Nashville, Tennessee.

Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at wku.showare.com or by calling the Fine Arts Box Office at (270) 745-3121.
