Description of Play
Luke believes in God. Adam believes in everything else. Next Fall is the story of a gay couple’s loving but turbulent five-year relationship in
Manhattan, portrayed with sharp humour and unflinching honesty. And when an accident changes everything, atheist Adam must lean on Luke’s family and friends for support…. and answers. The play is full of questions about faith, commitment, and unconditional love, forcing us to examine what it means to “believe” and what it might cost us not to.
Nominated in 2010 for the Tony (“Best Play”), Drama Desk (“Outstanding Play”) and Outer Critics Circle (“Outstanding New Broadway Play”) awards, Next Fall was named by New York Times’ theatre critic Ben Brantley as a Top 10 Show of 2009.
