Mr. Slade's plays, Same Time Next Year, Tribute and Romantic Comedy, have been internationally produced in London, Paris, Canada and have toured the U.S. In 1978, he and his wife appeared on stage in Same TimeNext Year at the Citadel Theatre in Edmonton, ON. "I am a prisoner of a childhood dream: to write for the theatre. The fulfillment of that dream has lived up to all my expectations. I believe the theatre should be a celebrationof the human condition and that the artist's job is to remind us of allthat is good about ourselves. I feel privileged to be given a platform for myparticular vision of life, and, whether my plays succeed of fail, I am always grateful for the use of the hall."
