Same Time Next Year at the Segal Centre
An accountant and a housewife meet at a hotel on a weekend in 1951 and they fall in love --but they're both happily married. They decide to meet for just one weekend each year and they do over a period of 25 years.
That's the story of the award-winning romantic comedy Same Time Next Year. Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn played the couple in a 1978 movie. Tonight the play version opens at the Segal Centre.
R.H.Thompson plays George: Thompson is a Gemini and Genie-winning actor, whom you may also remember as Jasper Dale from "Road to Avonlea".
Michelle Giroux plays Doris: Michelle Giroux is a veteran of the Stratford Sheakespeare Festival and Broadway- as well as a graduate of Montreal's National Theatre School.
