THE LAST FIVE YEARS – A Song Cycle by Jason Robert Brown ​- 12th – 20th August

Lane Cove Theatre Company follows up its recent hit productions of Away, Godspell and The Vagina Monologues with a timely musical theatre ‘two-hander’ that is (simultaneously) the first and last word on relationships… and all in magnificent song!

Written by Jason Robert Brown (Parade, Songs For A New World), THE LAST FIVE YEARS is a contemporary song-cycle musical that ingeniously chronicles the five year life of a marriage, from meeting to break-up… or from break-up to meeting, depending on how you look at it.

Cathy and Jamie’s relationship has lasted five years. As the story begins, Jamie (Brent Dolahenty) is at the beginning of the relationship and Cathy (Belinda Humphries) is at the end. With inter-cutting scenes, we watch Jamie move forward in time as Cathy moves backward.

Funny, honest, and intimate, and with an exuberantly romantic score, THE LAST FIVE YEARS takes a bold look at one young couple’s hope that love endures the test of time.

Lane Cove Theatre Company’s all new production is directed by Lochie Beh and stars Belinda Humphries as Cathy and Brent Dolahenty as Jamie. Musical director is Keiren Brandt-Sawdy.
