A drama by Geoffrey Nauffts
Directed by Jerimie Newcomb

Next Fall takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment and unconditional love. The play's central story focuses on the five-year relationship between Adam, an atheist, and the devoutly religious Luke — but this play goes beyond a typical love story.

When a sudden accident changes everything for the couple, Adam finds that he must turn to Luke’s family and friends. A timely and compelling new American play, Next Fall forces us all to examine what it means to "believe" and what it might cost us not to.

Warning: Due to adult language and situations, the play is recommended for mature audiences only.

Presented with generous support from
