“Ample heart and snappy humor… speaks in a quiet voice of momentous things.” ‑ New York Times
Two men in love, two parents in denial, two friends on speed dial. Next Fall is a contemporary love story that will make you smile, laugh, and cry. It won the hearts and minds of Broadway, capturing a 2010 Outer Critics Circle Award as Best New American Play and a Tony Award nomination for Best Play.
Adam and Luke are an example of opposites attract ‑ Adam is older, neurotic, and an atheist; Luke is impulsive, a struggling actor, and devoutly religious. After Luke is involved in a serious accident, family and friends descend upon them and these longtime differences collide, forcing opposing views on faith and family into a stand-off. Hilarious and heartbreaking, it exposes the fundamental truth that we love people both because of – and in spite of – who they are.
Bring someone you care about, take a deep breath, and enjoy this “artful, thoughtful and very moving” (New York Times) new drama.
