The Last Five Years

Winner of a Drama Desk Award and named one of TIME Magazine’s 10 best shows of 2001, Jason Robert Brown’s The Last Five Years is considered a masterpiece of modern theatre. An old story told in a new way, this funny and bittersweet musical is an intimate window into the relationship between Cathy, a struggling actress, and Jamie, a budding novelist on the brink of success. Cathy tells her story backwards from the dissolution of their relationship to first meeting, whilst Jamie tells his story chronologically; they meet only once, in the middle, at their wedding. This local production features Fleur du Cap nominee David Ralph Viviers in his musical debut, and making her professional debut is Fleur du Cap nominee Zoë McLaughlin. The cast is accompanied live on stage by an ensemble of six of Cape Town’s finest musicians.

Director: Paul Griffiths. Producer & Musical Director: Jaco Griessel. Technical manager: Daniel Voster
