About the Play:

Same Time, Another Year is a full-length comedy by Bernard Slade. This sequel to the Broadway hit Same Time, Next Year continues the 25 year love affair between two people, Doris and George, married to others, who rendezvous once a year.

Same Time, Another Year is the sequel to the Broadway hit, Same Time, Next Year, and continues the saga of an extramarital affair conducted one weekend a year. A memorable evening with Doris and George, two of the world's favourite characters, it opens on the couple's 25th anniversary in 1976 and continues through their February anniversaries. Maturing into their late sixties, Doris and George share the inevitabilities of aging and the convolutions of parenting and grandparenting as they redefine love outside of their annual tryst and romance within it. Hilarity and tenderness are perfectly balanced against the changing backdrop of the last quarter of the 20th century.

Same Time, Another Year premiered in 1996 at the Pasadena Playhouse in Pasadena, California, and has been a staple of community theatres and regional repertory houses since then.

About the Author:

Bernard Slade is a Canadian playwright and screenwriter who is best known as a long-time Hollywood TV-sitcom writer. He began his career as an actor performing in regional theatres around Toronto and on camera for the CBC. He moved to Hollywood in the mid-1960s, and was soon writing episodes of such classics-to-be as Bewitched. Credited as creator, writer, story editor and producer of eight series, including The Flying Nun and The Partridge Family, he was considered one of the true heavyweights in Hollywood. By the mid-1970s, he turned his comedic genius to the stage writing more than a dozen plays, including three Broadway hit shows like his phenomenally successful Same Time Next Year, Tribute and Romantic Comedy, which were all turned into Hollywood features.
