Watermark Announces Summer Plays for 2024

Watermark Theatre will produce Canadian playwright Bernard Slade’s hilarious romantic comedy Same Time, Next Year and the stage version of the Stephen King thriller Misery adapted by William Goldman next summer at the theatre in North Rustico.

A one-night stand turns into a quarter-century affair in Same Time, Next Year, one of the most popular romantic comedies of all time. The Tony Award-winning play follows George and Doris’ clandestine weekend rendezvous over the course of 25 years. The starry-eyed lovers meet for an annual getaway of romance, honesty, and hilarity against the backdrop of a rapidly changing world. Same Time, Next Year will run from June 25th to August 31st, 2024.

In Misery, true life becomes stranger than fiction when an acclaimed romance novelist wakes up in the home of his “Number One Fan”. Rescued from a wintery car crash, Paul Sheldon finds himself incapacitated in the secluded home of Annie Wilkes, a seemingly kind nurse. When events take a nightmarish turn, the injured Paul realizes Annie has no intention of letting him leave. This spine-tingling stage adaptation traps you in the room with Paul as he must outsmart Annie if he hopes to escape. Based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel, the tense cat-and-mouse game will grip you until the very end. Misery will run from July 5th to August 30th, 2024.

And finally, rounding out the summer programming, the Watermark Music Series returns. As always, Island musical artists interpret classic composers in a way that you have never heard before.
