The Outré Theatre Company will be coming to the Pompano Beach Cultural Center for their production of Gregory Naufft’s award-winning play Next Fall. The play was the winner of the 2010 Outer Critics Circle Award for Best New American Play, Next Fall is a said to be witty and provocative, taking a look at what sustains us, and what it is to love someone unconditionally.
“Nauffts has written a very funny, very powerful piece,” said Skye Whitcomb, Outré’s Artistic Director and the director of the production. “While the characters often exchange witty repartee, they also share their joy and sadness in a way that is very real and truthful. They struggle with identity, with belief in both the tangible and the intangible, and with their relationships with themselves and others. At its core, it’s a very beautiful, very moving love story.”
The New York Times said the play is, “Smart, sensitive, immensely appealing and utterly contemporary”. The Entertainment Weekly review called it “a daring new drama”. And, the Associated Press found it to be “compassionate, laugh-filled and enormously entertaining.”
