The Last Five Years synopsis
The Last Five Years tells the emotive story of two New Yorkers who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. With an unconventional structure, we see the story in reverse from Cathy’s point of view, showing us the end of their tumultuous relationship. Meanwhile, we see Jamie tell the story chronologically from when the couple first met. The pair only cross paths once, at their wedding, which falls in the middle of the show.
