Now playing Friday & Saturday Nights until September 1st
The play Same Time Next Year, a comedy by Bernard Slade, is about two adults, a man and a woman, who, through chance and an impulsive gesture, meet and discover a compelling attraction for each other. The complicating factor is that they are both happily married to other people. Unable to give up their new found love, they agree to meet for one weekend each year at the same time and the same place.
Through these meetings we learn of the many changes in their lives over a twenty-five year span and although there are only two people in the cast (a two-hander), they introduce us to their spouses and children and friends who all become real characters as well and we feel that we know them.
The play is set in the U.S. (California), and has references to politics and political figures and happenings there, particularly in the 60’s and 70’s. The story will evoke a wide range of emotions from laughter to tears as we follow George and Doris through twenty-five years of their lives. The show is not really appropriate for children as there is a bit of coarse language and adult content.
Same Time Next Year is directed by Diana Bishop and stars Paul Abela and Sherrie Howatt.
Same Time Next Year opens on Friday, July 27 and continues playing on Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm until September 1. There will be Sunday 2pm matinees on August 12 and August 26.
