M&D Playhouse presents “The Last Five Years”

M&D Playhouse will be presenting “The Last Five Years” by Jason Robert Brown as directed by Mary Bastoni, and starring Matt West and Emy Holden (of Fryeburg, Maine), Thursday through Saturday, June 9 to 25 at 7:30 p.m.

The story explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein (West), a rising novelist, and Cathy Hiatt (Holden), a struggling actress. The show uses a form of storytelling in which Cathy’s story is told in reverse chronological order (beginning the show at the end of the marriage), and Jamie’s is told in chronological order (starting just after the couple have first met). The characters do not directly interact except for a wedding song in the middle as their timelines intersect.

Tickets are $25 at the door or $20 in advance and can be ordered by called (603) 733-5275 or visiting www.yourtheatre.com.
