We are pushing the boundaries of this exquisite piece by taking it from a 2 hander to a 4 hander.
We are a company striving to become diversity confident and therefore welcome applications from all performers who feel they may fit the character breakdowns below, from a variety of backgrounds and experiences and disabled performers.
Our production has access at it’s heart and will feature a creative use of BSL and SSE to explore the veracity of communication breakdown between the two characters.
Please note that the alter ego’s will be strong dancers, and once again we are encouraging applications particularly from d/Deaf dancers/performers.
Leeway will ensure a BSL interpreter will be present at the dance auditions for deaf performers.
Leeway Productions will also support deaf performers in any way they can to ensure everyone has a great experience throughout the rehearsal period.

Brief Synopsis:
Drama Desk award-winner The Last Five Years is Jason Robert Brown’s intimate window into a couple’s doomed marriage. Cathy, a struggling actress, and Jamie, a budding novelist on the brink of wild success, are 20-somethings in New York who meet, fall in love, marry, and divorce over the span of five years. Cathy tells the story from the end of their marriage; Jamie begins from when they first meet. As the musical unfolds, Cathy moves backward in time to the beginning of the relationship as Jamie moves toward the end; they meet only once, in the middle, at their wedding. Since its Off-Broadway premiere in 2002, Brown’s funny, poignant, and devastatingly honest two-person production has enraptured audiences around the world with its spellbinding and emotional score and libretto.

Crynodeb Byr:
Mae sioe Jason Robert Brown, The Last Five Years, sydd wedi ennill gwobr Drama Desk, yn taflu golau ar briodas drychinebus un cwpl. Mae Cathy, sy’n actores adfyd, a Jamie, sy’n nofelydd ar ei brifiant ar fin gwireddi llwyddiant mawr, yn eu hugeiniau cynnar yn Efrog Newydd yn cwrdd, cwympo mewn cariad, priodi ac ysgaru mewn cyfnod o bum mlynedd. Mae Cathy’n adrodd y stori o ddiwedd y briodas, a Jamie’n cychwyn o’r foment cyfarfyddon nhw am y tro cyntaf. Wrth i’r sioe gerdd ddatblygu mae Cathy’n teithio nôl mewn amser at ddechrau’r berthynas wrth i Jamie deithio tuag at y diwedd; mae nhw’n cwrdd unwaith yn unig, ar ddiwrnod eu priodas. Ers ei premiere oddi ar Broadway yn 2002, mae’r cynhyrchiad dau berson doniol, trist, teimladwy ac eithriadol o onest wedi syfrdanu cynulleidfaoedd dros y byd gyda’i sgôr a geiriau cyfareddol ac emosiynol.
