Review from Roxanne Yahner

After seeing the magnificent movie A SINGLE MAN where Tom Ford deeply and beautifully explored the topic of gay isolation this play failed to capture our attention particularly when the main character, Adam, was so unappealing. NEXT FALL is well...continued

Review from Jonathan Ruane

Walked out at intermission. As a gay agnostic man dating a gay Catholic, I was shocked by the lack of nuance to this story. There were no shades of gray. Casting the playwright as the atheist was a giant mistake and revealed which "side" the...continued

Description

Next Fall, which has already won widespread critical acclaim (nominations for the 2010 Tony Award for Best Play, Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Broadway Play) makes its West Coast debut with the original New York director. Adam and Luke seem like a case of opposites attract – Adam is older, neurotic and an atheist; Luke is impulsive, a struggling actor and a devout Christian. After Luke is involved in a critical accident, family and friends descend upon the couple and these longtime differences collide, forcing opposing views on faith and family into a stand-off. As timely as it is touching, this must-see play exposes the fundamental truth that we love people both because of – and in spite of – who they are.

This play contains adult language and themes.
