Wishing a fantastic opening night to KIERAN BUCKERIDGE who opens in SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR for London Classic at Malvern Festival Theatre on the 26th January. The first stop on a UK-wide tour until 16 April.
Doris and George meet in 1951, a chance encounter in a Californian motel that leads to a passionate one-night stand. Both are married to other people but, soon aware that this might be the start of something, they promise to meet 12 months later.
So begins a romantic love affair that lasts 25 years. Bernard Slade paints a bittersweet, nostalgic and very funny portrait of two likeable protagonists who find themselves in the most unusual of long-term relationships.
One of the world’s most widely staged plays, Same Time, Next Year was originally produced on Broadway in 1975, starring Ellen Burstyn and Alan Alda.
