MARGATE, FL: Comedy, drama, history, and romance: Bernard Slade’s Same Time Next Year, provides a fascinating – and often very funny – look at two ordinary people who grow and change over an extended period of time. The Tony and Drama Desk award-winning play will open at Stage Door Theatre on April 15th, and run through May 22nd.
Doris and George, both married to others, meet at a remote inn in 1951 and begin an unusual affair that lasts over 25 years. Although they are together only once a year, and their relationship is definitely sexual, over the passage of time they develop an emotional intimacy that transcends the physical aspects of their liaison – during their times together they discuss the various issues they are experiencing in their own lives, as well as the social, moral, and political changes that are affecting them, and those around them.
Carbonell Award-winning director Andy Rogow will direct the production, which will star Matthew Korinko and Jacqueline Laggy.
“Same Time Next Year is a classic comedy for a very good reason,” says Rogow. “It’s so well constructed that even though these two people are committing annual adultery we care deeply about them and their families. We also laugh as they face the challenges of their era, which was also what made the play so successful when it opened in 1975. It wasn’t just a romantic comedy – it explored two characters facing huge societal changes; the move to the suburbs, the Vietnam War, Women’s Liberation and more.”
Same Time Next Year will run from April 15 – May 22 at Stage Door Theatre in Margate. The theatre is located at 8036 Sample Road, in Margate.
Tickets for Same Time Next Year are $38 – $42; $16 student tickets are also available. Tickets may be purchased at the Broward Stage Door Theatre box office at 954-344-7765 or on line at www.stagedoortheatre.com.
