The Segal Centre for Performing Arts and Delmar Freight Forwarders will close the English theatre season with Bernard Slade's award-winning romantic comedy SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR, a story of love through the ages, starring R.H. Thomson and Michelle Giroux and directed by Diana Leblanc. The show will be presented on the Segal Centre Mainstage from April 29th to May 20th, 2012.

On a weekend in 1951, New Jersey accountant George and California housewife Doris meet by chance in a cozy country inn. Indulging in a seemingly innocent ing, they soon realize that they have fallen hopelessly in love. The catch: both are happily married, but not to each other. They decide to re-create their romance for one weekend each year - only one weekend – after that they go back to their lives, their kids, and their spouses. Over the course of a quarter century, George and Doris share their passions, hopes and dreams through the ups and downs of their marriages and shifting American society. A metaphor for the changing moral landscape of post-war United States, SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR is a charming and poignant story that explores the complexities of love and human relationships.

SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR unites two stars of the Canadian stage: R.H. Thomson and Michelle Giroux. Known for his portrayal of Jasper Dale on the popular television series Road to Avonlea, Gemini and Genie-Award winner R.H. Thomson has played lead roles in many of the country's major theatres, and was last seen at the Segal Centre in 2009-2010's season hit Harvey. He will be joined by Stratford-veteran Michelle Giroux who returns to the Segal after her performance in Karoline Leach's Tryst.
