About The Show

Next Fall portrays the ups and downs of Adam and Luke’s long term relationship and how they make it work – despite their differences. Luke is devoutly religious, while Adam is an atheist. However, following an unexpected accident which changes everything, Adam must turn to Luke’s family and friends for support…and answers. This timely and compelling new American play goes beyond a typical love story and paints a beautiful and funny portrait of modern romance, questioning commitment, faith and unconditional love.

Next Fall opened in New York in 2009 to huge critical acclaim before transferring to the Helen Hayes Theatre on Broadway in 2010, where it was produced by Sir Elton John and David Furnish.

Geoffrey Nauffts won the John Gassner Award at the Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best New American Play for Next Fall. The play was also nominated for Outstanding Play at the Drama Desk Awards (2010), Outstanding New Broadway Play at the Outer Critics Circle Awards (2010) and Best Play at the Tony Awards (2010).


'COMPELLING and AFFECTING. Played with truthful, touching conviction by a cast led by Charlie Condou and Martin Delaney. A seriously classy job.'

                                 The Stage 

‘A slick, fast-paced production. The play wrestles with broad themes of love, religion and loss, but does so with a lightness of touch and much wit..’

‘In its UK premiere it proves to be a smart enough gay-relationship comedy that morphs into a surprising and compelling look at family, relationships, religion and coming out.’
