Two performances of Diversionary's "Next Fall" to include panel with discussion with faith leaders

SAN DIEGO -- In conjunction with its current production of "Next Fall," Diversionary Theatre has put together a panel of faith and secular leaders for a conversation about faith, religion, and belief and how they shape our lives and our relationships immediately following the shows on March 8 and 15.

In the Tony-nominated play by Geoffrey Nauffts, the relationship between two gay men who have vastly different religious beliefs is explored. Despite their differences the couple, Adam and Luke, share their love while coming to terms with their differences.

The panel discussions will include a number of well-known faith leaders, including Rabbi Laurie Coskey, executive director of Interfaith Committee for Worker Justice of San Diego County (ICWJ); Rev. Dan Koeshall, senior pastor at Metropolitan Community Church; Jeannie Burke, a Buddhist Chaplain; Rabbi Leonard Rosenthal of Tifereth Israel Synagogue; Chris Harris, Canon for Congregational Development at St. Paul’s Cathedral; and Debbie Allen, president of The Humanist Fellowship of San Diego.

Coskey, Koeshall, and Burke will sit on the March 8 panel, and Rosenthal, Harris, and Allen speaking on March 15.

PFLAG San Diego will host a reception at 6:45 pm on the night of these special shows. Showtime is 7:30 pm with the panel discussions immediately following.
