Become A Friend

Same Time, Next Year

Presented by London Classic Theatre

Tuesday 8 - Saturday 12 March 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.

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

Friends Discount: 50% off tickets on Tuesday 8 March and £5 off tickets on all other performances. Offer available on price bands A&B only.
