The Sinodun Players proudly present this off-Broadway contemporary show performed in the intimacy of The Corn Exchange’s Studio Theatre. It is an emotionally powerful and intimate musical, which has captivated audiences and critics alike earning cult status. It has been performed in many productions around the world and a film adaptation was released in 2015.

This production stars Freya Jacklin-Edward (BBC Singers, Session singer for major films plus Principal Opera Roles) & Poppy Jackson (Actor and musical theatre singer) as Cathy with Andy Rainsford (Oxford Operatic Singer & Actor) & Jake Willett (Trained at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and Actor/Singer for over 20 years) as Jamie supported by a four-piece orchestra.

Synopsis: 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, Jamie shares his story from the spark of their relationship’s giddy beginning, whilst Cathy’s side is told in reverse, from the end of their turbulent partnership. The two characters cross paths just once, as their stories collide during the middle of the show.

Poppy Jackson, Jake Willett, Freya Jacklin-Edward, Andy Rainsford

The parts of Cathy and Jamie will be played by Poppy Jackson and Jake Willett on Tuesday 10th, Thursday 12th and Sat 14th Sept at 8pm; and by Freya Jacklin-Edward and Andy Rainsford on Weds 11th and Friday 13th Sept at 8pm, and on Sat 14th Sept at 3pm.
