The Last Five Years at the New Wolsey Theatre, included in Culture365


As part of their 15th birthday celebrations in 2016, the New Wolsey Theatre produced a brand new version of The Last Five Years, which opened on 25th February.

Starting and ending with the beginning of a passionate love affair, the unique style of storytelling and infectious score makes this one of America’s best modern musicals.

Actress Cathy’s story starts with the end of their relationship following their tale backwards to when she first fell in love with her young talented lover. Novelist Jamie’s story begins with their first passionate encounter and heads forward towards heartache.

As part of their mission to create theatre that is as accessible as possible to all, the New Wolsey Theatre made every performance of The Last Five Years audio described for visually impaired audiences using integrated recorded audio description that audiences could experience through a headset.
