Next Fall

Presented by Boyslikeme


Luke believes in God, Adam believes in Google! Despite their differences their relationship works but when a tragic accident occurs the most deeply held beliefs of family and friends are put to the test and Adam must turn to Luke’s Christian family for support…. And answers.

Next Fall asks us what it costs to believe and what it might cost us not to.

Produced on Broadway by Elton John and nominated for all major awards including 3 Tony Awards. Next Fall has enjoyed popular and critical success in the USA, Europe and Australia. This is the Adelaide Premiere season.

The New York Times called Next Fall “The funniest heartbreaker in town.” Time Out New York and Theatre People in AUS gave the play 5 Stars calling it "An important human story well worth checking out.” While the Hollywood Reporter said Next Fall is “Compassionate, heart filled and enormously entertaining.”
