Innovative Project Grantee Holds Final March Performances
One of the Arts Council’s 2011-2012 Innovative Project Grantees will hold performances during the month of March. These performances are open to the public.
Winston-Salem’s Paper Lantern Theatre Company will present Next Fall written by Greoffrey Nauffts and directed by Jonathan Bohun Brady, through March 25 at the Ring Theatre at Wake Forest University. This is the Winston-Salem premiere of Next Fall, a 2010 Tony Award nominee for Best Play and the Drama Desk Award Outer Critics Circle Award winners. Next Fall is a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment and unconditional love. While the play’s central story focuses on the five-year relationship between Adam and Luke, it goes beyond a typical love story. This timely and compelling new American play forces us all to examine what it means to “believe” and what it might cost us not to.
The play first debuted in Greensboro in January, where it was reviewed by Lynn Jessup who said, “…you will realize you have had a truly authentic theatre experience, and you will be grateful.” Read the full review here.
Showtimes: Thursday – Saturday performances start at 8:00 pm and Sunday Matinees at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $18.00 – $15.00 and may be purchased online by clicking here . The Ring Theatre at Wake Forest University is located at 1834 Wake Forest Road, Winston Salem, NC 27109. For more information call (336) 721-1310.
