The Last Five Years is perhaps the most perfectly written chamber musical of recent times, with a thrilling score, a perfect concoction of comedy and heartache and is a tour de force for the central performers. The show has played twice in New York and London, and has been a major film release with a large cult following. Featuring a small orchestra formed from St John’s pupils, the audience will watch the simple story of Jamie and Cathy falling in love, marrying and taking the sad road to separation, all told through monologues and duets - all with one huge, theatrical twist.
Who is responsible for the demise of the relationship? Only the audience can decide.
