NMT Productions presents THE LAST FIVE YEARS by Jason Robert Brown
Aug 2-4 at 7.30 pm, Stack Theatre, Cork School of Music
Tickets €12/€10 from TL5Y.eventbrite.ie
The Last Five Years offers viewers a unique insight into a love affair and marriage which takes place over a five year period. The show centers itself around Jamie Wellerstein, a talented up and coming novelist and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling small town actress. Their story is told almost entirely throught song, using an intercutting time line device showing us the highs and lows of their relationship. Cathy begins at the end of their marriage and moves backwards in time to the day they first met, while Jamie starts from day one and moves forward to the end of their marriage. They meet only once – on their wedding day.
Starring Tara Downes as Cathy Hiatt and Conor Prendiville as Jamie Wellerstein, this modern musical is like no other and will provide Cork Audiences the chance to experience contemporary musical theatre at its finest.
