Jamie is a novelist whose star is on a dizzying rise. Cathy is an actress trying to get a toehold on the bottom rung. And as fate, or chance, or internet algorithms would have it, they meet. In a series of emotionally intimate songs, we follow Jamie and Catherine through the course of their five-year involvement, entering into each of their perspectives at opposite points in their love story. Jamie tells their story from first infatuation, while Cathy moves backward in time from the closing notes of their marriage. This musical journey through their relationship—in all its elation and heartbreak—captures the beauty of being in love, no matter how fleeting.

A co-production from TheatreLAB and Yes And Entertainment, the team that brought you the award-winning productions of HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH, RIDING THE BULL, and VENUS IN FUR.
