Back in the day so many young people, especially young women, married right out of high school.
That was what we were supposed to do according to society at that time. And if you went to college, you really went to get your MRS degree. You stayed married even if, as you grew in that relationship, the person you married was someone you no longer knew and vice versa.
People change throughout their lives. Love changes. Sometimes it gets “comfortable” or in some sad situations, it goes away altogether.
The two people in this play have marriages that go through so many changes, but they love their spouses and their children and weather all the things that tear many relationships apart. And one weekend a year they have each other. Is that why their marriages survive successfully? Who knows.
Same Time, Next Year is a play mostly about friendship, growth, laughter and love, but most of all, it’s about love.
