On November 13th, Queer Theatre Kalamazoo opens its production of Next Fall -- a play that represents a lot of firsts for the local group. It’s the theatre company’s first play that’s not a new work. And it’s QTK's first production that’s a full drama, covering the complex intersection of faith and sexuality. The play is also the first part of a new focus by Queer Theatre Kalamazoo to explore those themes and reach out to more than just the LGBT community.
