The Rosemount Front Porch Players, Inc., in partnership with the Rosemount Area Arts Council, is thrilled to announce an upcoming performance of, Same Time Next Year by Bernard Slade, directed by Keith Reed.
In 1951, at an inn located on the Mendocino County coast, Doris, a 24-year-old housewife from Oakland, meets George, a 27-year-old accountant from New Jersey at dinner. They have a sexual tryst, and then agree to meet once a year to rekindle the sparks they experience at their first meeting, despite the fact that both are happily married, with six children between them. They each discuss their respective yet unseen spouses, "Harry" and "Helen."
Over the course of the next 26 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 births, deaths, including George's son Michael dying in Vietnam, which changes George politically, and marital problems each experiences at home, while they adapt themselves to the social changes affecting their lives.
