2024 NEXT! Staged Reading Series: Fall Forever


Fall Forever by Eva Schegulla
Directed by Mary Davis Fralick

Synopsis: As Leah grieves her sister Lily’s death, she discovers the fractures in her own marriage. As Alan grieves his wife’s death, he paints the same picture over and over again, depicting their final perfect autumn afternoon together. Alan’s art dealer brings in a psychic, hoping that will help Alan heal and get unstuck before he loses his career. An old flame from Leah’s past resurfaces, sketches showing Lily’s unique talent emerge, and Alan reveals how Lily provided inspiration for some of his best-known work. Lily’s spirit still pervades the house and garden she loved as her loved ones prepare to honor her on the Summer Solstice, her favorite holiday. A drama about grief, art, loss, secrets, and love.

The NEXT! play-reading series continues its mission to celebrate and inspire Central New York playwrights, as well as to introduce their work to a larger audience. Giving playwrights the ability to collaborate with local directors and performers, this series also welcomes the valuable feedback from the public which is critical to the development of any new work. Three plays  are selected each year on the basis of their literary and artistic merit, and are presented free to the public.
