Geoffrey Nauffts' Tony-nominated Next Fall explores the tension between sexual orientation and religious faith with humor and heartbreak. Following a terrible car crash, Adam, an atheist, finds himself sharing a hospital room with the god-fearing parents of his comatose lover Luke. As the couple's relationship unfolds through a series of tender, often hilarious flashbacks, it becomes apparent in the present day that Luke's family is unaware of both their son's homosexuality and the man he has spent the last five years of his life with. Smart, sensitive and immensely appealing, Next Fall is an unflinchingly honest portrayal of modern love. Learn More

FUN & NOBODY, written by Howard Korder and directed by Jeffrey Kieviet, is two connected One Acts that move from the very beginning. First Act follows two teens, Casper & Denny, on a crazy Thursday afternnoon that only ends on Friday morning. The dialogue is snappy and off-beat and Forest Orta & Adam Poynter own Korder's whacked-out, teen-angst, f-bombing dialogue, making their relationship feel real and awkward and funny and relatable. The highlight, though, is Act II, as Rick Kopp's Carl, seamlessly slides through a slow downward spiral after losing his job. I felt like a voyeaur watching him. It was deliciously uncomfortable to see how the world suddenly looked so warped and how it affected him differently than it used to when he was a working man. Pam Paulson nails it as his concerned wife, who still believes in him. She watches his breakdown with concern & support. You can feel even when they argue it's always coming from a place of love, making me believe he will get though this with her by his side... which only makes the ending that much more shocking and awesome and effing right-on. The eighties rock music is fun too.
