"Return Engagements"
Richmond Gateway Theatre - 1995

A Comedy by Bernard Slade

SYNOPSIS

This ingenious comedy is by the author of "Same Time, Next Year", "Tribute",
"Romantic Comedy" and "Same Time, Another Year".

The first act is comprised of three vignettes showing separate couples: a tipsy actress and the bellboy who has bedded her the night before, a gutsy Polish woman who has survived World War II and a carpenter whom she chooses to father her baby, and an acid tongued columnist and his cool psychotherapist wife who are about to split up.

In Act II, we meet the couples 20, 25 and 30 years later, as we learn much to our merriment how they ended up. And, we learn how, ultimately, their stories are all linked together.
