The Last Five Years

22nd June 2021, 19:00 to 25th June 2021, 19:00, Assembly Rooms Theatre

An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years.

DULOG is proud to present our production of The Last Five Years, the internationally acclaimed musical by Jason Robert Brown. The story explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress. The show's unconventional structure consists of Cathy telling her story backwards, at the end of their marriage, while Jamie tells his story chronologically, when they first fall in love. There is therefore no mystery about what happened – the real question is about why.
