A very moving story of a gay couple agonizing over differences in their religious faiths. 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.

And when an accident changes everything, Adam must turn to Luke’s family and friends for support… and answers.

"Next Fall" paints a beautiful and funny portrait of modern romance, asking the hard questions about commitment and faith. But ultimately, simply, it is about the transformative power of love. 

Bart Guingona as Adam and David Bianco as Luke
The cast features Bart Guingona as Adam, a committed cynic, atheist and hypochondriac, while David Bianco plays the role of Luke, Adam’s boyfriend, a born-again Christian and aspiring actor. David hails from Michigan and this is his first foray into the local theater scene.

The play won the 2010 John Gassner Award for Geoffrey Nauffts. In the same year, the play was also nominated for the Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Play; at the Tony Awards, for Best Play; and the Outer Critics Circle Awards, for Outstanding New Broadway Play.

Liesl Batucan essays the role of Holly, Adam’s fag hag best friend and owner of the candle shop where both Adam and Luke work. Niccolo Manahan plays Brandon, Luke’s friend, a property manager. Like Luke, he is both gay and a born-again Christian. Juno Henares plays Arlene, Luke’s mother, a former wild child who has since settled in to middle aged eccentricity. Miguel Faustmann is Butch, Luke’s father and Arlene’s ex-husband, a deeply religious man.
