Outré Theatre Company Presents Next Fall at The Pompano Beach Cultural Center
8:00 PM-11:00 PM
The Outré Theatre Company and the City of Pompano Beach are pleased to announce Outré’s next production, Gregory Naufft’s award-winning play Next Fall. Winner of the 2010 Outer Critics Circle Award for Best New American Play, Next Fall is a witty, provocative examination of what sustains us, and what it means to love unconditionally. March 8-March 31, 2019. Tickets from $19-$39 available at www.ccpompano.org or by calling (954) 545-7800.
“Nauffts has written a very funny, very powerful piece,” said Skye Whitcomb, Outré’s Artistic Director and the director of the production. “While the characters often exchange witty repartee, they also share their joy and sadness in a way that is very real and truthful. They struggle with identity, with belief in both the tangible and the intangible, and with their relationships with themselves and others. At its core, it’s a very beautiful, very moving love story.”
Luke is a devout believer. Adam is his boyfriend, and a militant agnostic – he doesn’t know, and you don’t either. Next Fall chronicles the relationship of the unlikely couple over the course of their five-year relationship, from their meeting at a dinner event where Luke is waiting tables, to their breakups and makeups, to finally the tragedy that forces Adam to seek comfort, strength, and communion with Luke’s religious parents.
“Smart, sensitive, immensely appealing and utterly contemporary” – New York Times
“A daring new drama” – Entertainment Weekly
“Compassionate, laugh-filled and enormously entertaining” – Associated Press
