Nina Arianda and Sam Rockwell Heat Up Williamstown's Fool for Love

Previously announced Tony Award winner Nina Arianda and Sam Rockwell will be joined by Emmy Award winner Tom Pelphrey (By The Water at MTC, End of the Rainbow) and Tony Award nominee Gordon Joseph Weiss (Fool For Love at Williamstown, Ghetto).

"Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart," according to press notes. "Beaten down by ill-fated love and a ruthless struggle for identity, can they ultimately live with, or without, each other?"

Fool for Love is presented in association with Williamstown Theatre Festival.

The creative team includes Dane Laffrey (scenic design), Anita Yavich (costume design), Justin Townsend (lighting design), Ryan Rumery (sound design) and David S. Leong (movement and fights).

Tickets are available by calling Telecharge at (212) 239-6200, online by visiting The Samuel J. Friedman Theatre Box Office (261 West 47th Street) will open Aug. 24. Ticket prices are $70–$150.
