Same Time Next Year

By Bernard Slade

Directed by Michael Chase

Romantic comedy about two people who are married (but not to each other) and meet for one weekend every year for 25 years.

New Jersey accountant, George, and Oakland housewife, Doris, meet by chance over dinner at a Northern California inn in February 1951. Although both are married to others, they find themselves in the same bed the next morning questioning how this could have happened. They agree to meet on the same weekend each year despite the fact that they have six children between them. Each of them always appears on schedule, but as time goes on each has some personal crisis that the other helps them through. Over the 24 years, they develop an emotional intimacy deeper than what one would expect to find between two people meeting for a clandestine relationship just once a year. During the time they spend with each other, they discuss the births, deaths, and marital problems each is experiencing at home, while they adapt themselves to the social changes affecting their lives. The opening scene can be found in this address:
