Next Fall takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment and unconditional love. While the play’s central story focuses on the five-year relationship between Adam and Luke, Next Fall goes beyond a typical love story. This timely and compelling new American play forces us all to examine what it means to “believe” and what it might cost us not to.
Directed by Tara Williams & Clint Ibele
Adam – Brian Anderson
Luke – Matthew Wilson
Holly – Lauren Carr
Brandon – Michael Monks
Arlene – Tracy M. Schoster

The Beauty Queen of Leenane
By Martin McDonagh
Set in the mountains of Connemara, County Galway, The Beauty Queen Of Leenane tells the darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early forties, and Mag, her manipulative aging mother, whose interference in Maureen’s first and possibly final chance of a loving relationship sets in motion a train of events that leads inexorably towards the play’s terrifying dénouement.
“The opening night audience was fixated on the action, audibly responding to what was happening on stage with gasps, laughs, and genuine emotion. Any play that can do that is magic.” – The Sappy Critic
