    A hit both off-Broadway and internationally, The Last Five Years comes to Wales for the very first time. This ground-breaking production, directed by Angharad Lee, combines an emotionally powerful score with sign language and beautiful movement by award-winning choreographer Mark Smith, who is Deaf. This intimate musical charting New Yorkers Cathy and Jamie's passionate five-year relationship is an affecting tale of love found and lost.  By turns funny and poignant, with catchy tunes and a clever chronological twist, The Last Five Years will keep you riveted from beginning to end… or should that be from end to beginning?
    Every performance of The Last Five Years is accessible to D/deaf, deafened and hard of hearing audience members, with closed captioning and integrated sign language to be enjoyed by all.
