What Is the Story of Next Fall?
A non-traditional love story told through a series of flashbacks, Next Fall follows the romance of Luke and Adam and the loved ones that orbit around them. Luke and Adam’s mismatched May-December romance has survived five years of ups and downs, but one nagging issue continues to rear its head: faith. Luke is a devout Christian and Adam is skeptical about the existence of God. When an unexpected tragedy befalls one of them, the other must face his faith—both in his love and in the universe at large—while the couple’s friends and family bring their own questions to the table.


for Next Fall

“Deeply moving and surprisingly funny. The six-person ensemble delivers terrific performances. [Playwright] Geoffrey Nauffts reveals a talent for sharp comic dialogue.”

Review by Frank Scheck from The Hollywood Reporter

“The best new American play of the Broadway season. If you go, which you should, be prepared to laugh some, perhaps to cry some, and then to rise in appreciation.”

Review by Adam Feldman from Time Out New York

"A smart, sensitive, immensely appealing and utterly contemporary New York comedy with a wonderful cast. The funniest heartbreaker in town.”

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times

"Compassionate, expertly cast, laugh-filled and enormously entertaining."

Review by Michael Kuchwara from Associated Press

“Genuinely affecting! A moving domestic drama with laughter and sobs emanating from the audience.”
