The timely work, which questions faith in a modern gay relationship, opened to positive reviews June 3 and was originally scheduled to conclude performances June 21. After two previous extensions, Next Fall will now play an additional 30 performances through Aug 8. All performances through July 11 are currently sold out.

Sheryl Kaller (Dangerous Beauty) directs a cast including Patrick Breen (Fuddy Meers, Brighton Beach Memoirs), Maddie Corman (Isn't It Romantic, "Some Kind of Wonderful"), Sean Dugan (Corpus Christi, Rough Crossing), Patrick Heusinger ("Gossip Girl," Spamalot), Connie Ray (The Heidi Chronicles) and Cotter Smith (An American Daughter).

Next Fall asks, "What happens when a Christian gives an Atheist the Heimlich?" The play, according to press notes, "chronicles the five-year relationship between Adam and Luke as they wrestle with their respective demons. Timely and compelling, the play places the Prop 8 controversy in a human context by exploring what it means to 'believe' in this day and age, and what it might cost us not to."

Designing the production are Wilson Chin (scenic design), Jessica Wegener (costume design), Jeff Croiter (lighting design) and Bart Fasbender (sound design).

Next Fall is produced by Barbara Manocherian with Jeff Davis and Anthony Barrile.

For tickets, priced $50, phone (212) 279-4200 or visit TicketCentral. The Peter Jay Sharp Theatre is located at 416 West 42nd Street.
