Same Time Next Year Tour

Same Time, Next Year Tour 2022

Doris and George meet in 1951, a chance encounter in a Californian hotel 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.

The play charts their lives through the ups and downs of parenthood, career highs and lows as well as the shifting fashions and morals of the passing decades.

Bernard Slade paints a bittersweet, nostalgic and funny portrait of two likeable protagonists who find themselves in the most unusual of long-term relationships.

London Classic Theatre will tour Bernard Slade’s Same Time, Next Year. Michael Cabot directs Kieran Buckeridge (George) and Sarah Kempton (Doris) in one of the world’s most widely staged plays, originally produced on Broadway in 1975.

Bernard Slade was a Canadian playwright and screenwriter.  As a playwright, his credits include Tribute, Romantic Comedy, Special Occasions and An Act of the Imagination.  As a screenwriter, his credits include created The Flying Nun, The Partridge Family, Love on a Rooftop, Bridget Loves Bernie and The Girl with Something Extra.

The Same Time, Next Year tour 2022 has set and costume designs by Bek Palmer and lighting design by Matthew Green.

London Classic Theatre was launched in 2000 as a touring theatre company with David Mamet’s Oleanna. This inaugural tour lost a small fortune but doors had opened and, crucially, the work was being seen. Twenty years and forty-one tours later, London Classic Theatre is now a successful, established part of the commercial UK touring theatre scene. The company has never received any funding or sponsorship for its work. As Artistic Director, Michael Cabot has programmed a repertoire of classic and modern classic plays, a mixture of the challenging and the commercial, big titles and less well-known, including two UK premières – Hugh Leonard’s Love in the Title and Joanna Murray-Smith’s Nightfall. As venues and audiences have become more familiar with the work, he has been able to push the boundaries of what LCT offers, both in ambition, scale, and complexity.
