The following weekend we present Next Fall on June 16th and 17th both at 7:30pm. Next Fall is a play written by Geoffrey Nauffts. The play is about two gay men in a committed relationship with a twist, with one, Luke, being devoutly religious and the other, Adam, an atheist.

However, when an accident changes everything, Adam must turn to Luke’s family for support and answers.
The final show of the festival is Stop Kiss which plays June 23rd and 24th both at 7:30pm. Stop Kiss is a play written by the American playwright Diana Son.
