About the Play:

Same Time, Next Year is a full-length comedy by Bernard Slade. George and Doris are married, but not to each other. After a passionate chance meeting, the two decide to meet once a year to rekindle their relationship. Encompassing twenty five years of reunions, manners and morals, Tony nominated and Drama Desk winning, Same Time, Next Year is a hilarious and touching look at unconventional love and changing times.

Same Time, Next Year is the story of a love affair between two married people who see each other only once a year for one-day over the course of 25 years. The fresh, touching, and hilariously funny story of lovers Doris and George, married – to other people – who meet by chance while on separate business trips in 1951. The pair vow to rendezvous each year in the same place, and end up finding a connection that transcends the initial spark of passion to span a quarter of a century's worth of love, loss, joy, conflict, but ultimately a common ground that sustains their unique friendship. Same Time, Next Year is a delicious tryst about the complexities of human relationships and the phenomenon of love

Same Time, Next Year premiered in 1975 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on Broadway in New York, ran for four years, and achieved unparalleled success. One of the most popular romantic comedies in American theatre, it became the most performed two-character play in history, translated into more than 40 languages and performed thousands of times the world over. The play has become a favourite scene study vehicle in acting classes and workshops and is regularly performed in regional repertory, college, and community theatre productions.

About the Playwright:

Bernard Slade Newbound (1930-2019), known professionally as Bernard Slade, was a Canadian playwright and long-time Hollywood TV-sitcom writer. He began his career as an actor performing in over 200 plays on stage, radio and television 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.
