He couldn’t find true love in Coronation Street so let’s hope Charlie Condou‘s next relationship will be more successful.
Condou is to star in the UK premiere of the Tony nominated Broadway comedy drama, Next Fall which opens at London’s Southwark Playhouse next month.
Next Fall will be directed by Luke Sheppard, whose critically acclaimed production of In The Heights was a sell-out at the venue earlier this year.
The Geoffrey Nauffts comedy 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 and compelling new American play goes beyond a typical love story and paints a beautiful and funny portrait of modern romance, questioning commitment, faith and unconditional love.
Next Fall opened in New York in 2009 to huge critical acclaim before transferring to the Helen Hayes Theatre on Broadway in 2010, where it was produced by Elton John and David Furnish.
Charlie Condou (who plays Adam) became a household name playing Marcus Dent in Corrie.
His theatre credits include: Dying for It (Almedia Theatre), The Changeling (Southwark Playhouse), Shopping & F***ing (No 1 tour), Cracked (Hampstead Theatre), After The Rain (Gate Theatre).
The rest of the cast are Nancy Crane, Ben Cura, Martin Delaney, Mitchell Mullen and Sirine Saba.
Next Fall will run from September 24-October 25.
