Chicago Premiere

April 25th – May 25th, 2013

NEXT FALL follows the ups and downs of an unlikely couple – Luke, who’s devoutly religious and Adam, who’s an atheist. Despite their differences, they manage to make it work during their five years together. When an accident changes everything, Adam must turn to Luke’s family and friends for support… and answers. NEXT FALL paints a touching and witty portrait of modern romance, asking the hard questions about commitment, love and faith.
