Same Time Next Year

Where: Southwest Arts Center in Atlanta, Georgia

The fresh, touching, and hilariously funny story of lovers Doris and George, married – to other people – who meet by chance while on separate business trips in 1951. The pair vow to rendezvous each year in the same place, and end up finding a connection that transcends the initial spark of passion to span a quarter of a century’s worth of love, loss, joy, conflict, but ultimately a common ground that sustains their unique friendship.  Same Time, Next Year is a delicious tryst about the complexities of human relationships and the phenomenon of love.

Protip: Also playing on Saturday and Sunday! Tickets are $50 for adults, $30 for seniors (65+), and $20 for students. Doors open at 7pm.
