The Last Five Years – presented by The Geelong Lyric Theatre Society

27 September 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 5 October 2019 @ 7:30 pm

| ADULT $36.50 STUDENT/CONC $31.00

The Geelong Lyric Theatre Society is a Community run theatre company dedicated to presenting very high quality, affordable Music Theatre to local audiences.

The Last Five Years is a 1 act, 2 actor chamber musical that has reached a kind of cult status since its premiere at Northlight Theatre, Chigago in 2001. The story explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising New York based novelist, and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress. Each character’s story plays out through a cycle of 14 killer songs. The major quirk is, Cathy’s timeline moves backwards while Jamie’s hurtles forward. Joy and despair are continually pitched at odds as a love affair bursts to life while simultaneously falling apart. Don’t miss your opportunity to catch a little show with a big reputation, and find out what all the fuss is about!
