Adam (Bart Guingona) sneaks out and opens his MacBook Pro. Luke (David Bianco) screams from the bedroom, “Are you checking that tumor website again?” Adam is paranoid about having a tumor. His hypochondria stems from his fear of having AIDS in his college days. Luke joins him on the sofa this is when they truly bare their soul to each other, a conversation neither of them will forget.

Perhaps among all of the plays this season, “Next Fall” by Repertory Phil. is a must see for all (adult) audiences. The play won the John Gassner award from the Outer Critics circle for playwright Geoffrey Nauffts. The story deals with the conflicts that gay men have with their Christian faith. Here in the Philippines, it’s something that people don’t necessarily talk about or judge either for or against a side in the religious issue. The play however, only shows how real people cope with their faith.
