PURE Theatre does it again. Next Fall is fantastic, and in its closing weekend. So if you already have some tacky sweater Christmas party on your agenda, break your plans, and make your way to Upper King for this show.
Do you like really intelligent, well-done theatre, that is funny even in the poignant moments? Then Next Fall is for you. PURE Theatre consistently puts on some of the most touching performances. Human vulnerability at its very best.
Next Fall takes a measured and insightful look at relationships–between families, between friends, between lovers. It’s a humorous play, but with some tear-jerking moments.
Without giving too much away, the examination of how people act in relationships, their fears and their misgivings, and how they deal with loss is central to the play. Playwright Geoffrey Nauffts looks into the human psyche, to what motivates the players, and how their actions, beliefs, and prejudices affect the people around them.
PURE Theatre artistic director and co-founder Sharon Graci directs; Michael Catangay, Brannen Daugherty, Katie Huard, Michael Smallwood, Lucille Keller and Evan Parry star. Next Fall is written by Geoffrey Nauffts, and makes its regional premier at PURE.
