Charlie Condou stars in Next Fall at Southwark Playhouse
Coronation Street star Charlie Condou will star in the UK premiere of the Tony-nominated Broadway comedy drama Next Fall, written by Geoffrey Nauffts and directed by Luke Sheppard, beginning previews on 24 Sep 2014, officially opening on 29 Sep and continuing its limited engagement through to 25 Oct 2014.
Synopsis: 'Next Fall portrays the ups and downs of Adam and Luke's long term relationship and how they make it work - despite their differences. Luke is devoutly religious, while Adam is an atheist. However, following an unexpected accident which changes everything, Adam must turn to Luke's family and friends for support and answers. This timely American play goes beyond a typical love story and paints a portrait of modern romance, questioning commitment, faith and unconditional love.'
Next Fall first transferred to Broadway at the Helen Hayes Theatre in 2010, where it was produced by Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish. It was nominated for Best Play at the 2010 Tony Awards.
This production of Next Fall features scenic design by David Woodhead, lighting by Howard Hudson and sound design by David Gregory. It is produced by James Quaife Productions and David Adkin.
Charlie Condou is best known for playing TV regular Marcus Dent on ITV's 'Coronation Street'. His theatre credits include 'Dying for It' at Almedia Theatre, 'The Changeling' at Southwark Playhouse, 'Cracked' at Hampstead Theatre, and 'After The Rain' at Gate Theatre.
