"I think that I could be in love with someone like you..."
Jamie and Cathy’s relationship is over five years after they first met. Both have their stories to tell from meeting to breaking up, but while Jamie follows the events chronologically, Cathy traces the relationship backwards. With alternating songs, the pair meet only once in this sung-through musical, exploring themes of marriage, career ambitions and what it means to be in love.
Humorous yet poignant, at times heart-warming and at times heart-breaking, The Last Five Years encourages us to see the complexities within modern relationships, and ultimately consider whether we are right to do the things we do for love.
Accompanied by a powerful score, the Last Five Years moves between hilarious comedy songs and tender, emotional ballads to produce a whirlwind picture of Jamie and Cathy’s relationship, told through both their lenses
