NC Journal site to my review of The Last Five Years at Redwood Curtain by someone who signs himself as Jonathan. He refers to the program note cited by the previous commenter, "Dianne" (presumably the show's director):
“the action moves simultaneously between the present and the past” is definitely a confusing way of describing what’s going on.
i think what the show needs is a preamble describing exactly how Cathy became stuck in the temporal paradox in the first place. was it a highly localized wormhole creating a parallel universe? a massive breech in the anti-matter containment system that fractured the time-space continuum? the audience is left in the dark."
