Archives - Same Time Next Year
by Bernard Slade
Directed by Joan Goodwin
Friday 18th – Saturday 26th March 1994 in the Auditorium
George picks up Doris in a California Inn in 1951 and they agree to meet there once a year. They are both happily married, have children and remain loyal to their spouses except for their yearly brief encounter. We meet the pair six times — once every five years.
George is an upright neurotic accountant who becomes a latter-day hippie and finally returns to the establishment. Doris goes through a variety of changes before becoming a settled matron. Their transitions never synchronise — making for pointed contrasts.
The New York Times described this “delicious and very moral kind of immoral play” as “the funniest comedy about love and adultery to come Broadway’s way in years”.
