Center Players Presents "Same Time, Next Year" by Bernard Slade

(FREEHOLD, NJ) -- Center Players Dessert Theater will present Same Time, Next Year at Center Playhouse in Freehold from February 14-March 8th. Written by Bernard Slade, this 1975 romantic comedy will be directed by Anthony Marinelli, and tells the story of Doris and George, who are married, but not to each other. They first meet in 1951 and begin an affair that spans 24 years, meeting at the same Northern California cottage on the same weekend every year.

As time passes, their relationship develops into an emotional intimacy that grows deeper as the years go by. Everything else may change in their lives but there is one thing that remains the same - their love for one another. Vince Faye of Matawan and Donna Nicholle of Freehold star in the production.

Manalapan-NJ resident Anthony Marinelli has written and directed for both theater and film. At Center Players, Marinelli has directed productions of Butterflies are Free, Play It Again, Sam and Chapter Two.  On stage, he produced and directed Fool for Love and Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, in NYC. His one-act plays include Acoustic Space, (Winner Best Play 2014 Strawberry One Act Festival), Another Famous Dead Artist, Max & Domino, Visitors, Sartre Was Wrong and Missing Life. His film adaptation of Acoustic Space won Best Short in the 2018 Ridgewood Guild International Film Festival and Best Original Screenplay in the 2016 Richmond International Film Festival. Another short he directed, Walt Whitman Never Paid For It, won the Audience Choice Award at the Richmond International Film Festival in 2014. Both films are available on Amazon Prime. He is also the co-founder of post-production company, TwoPoint0 and owner of AntHill Productions.  

Performances are Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm. Tickets are priced at $26-28 and are available online at www.centerplayers.org or by calling 732-462-9093.  Center Playhouse is located at 35 South Street in Freehold, New Jersey.

Celebrating its 19th season at Center Playhouse, Center Players is a respected, award-winning organization, presenting high quality, engaging productions featuring local talent in downtown Freehold. In addition to their signature plays, the group also sponsors free play readings and other special events and offers dinner and theater packages with several local restaurants.
