Luke believes in God. Adam believes in everything else. NEXT FALL portrays the ups and downs of this unlikely couple's five-year relationship with sharp humor and unflinching honesty.

NEXT FALL paints a beautiful and funny portrait of modern romance, asking the hard questions about commitment, love and faith. Bursting with political relevance and emotional truth, it's an extraordinary new piece of contemporary American theatre.
Don't miss it.
