The End Of Longing

You loved Friends. You laugh your socks off at every episode of The Odd Couple. And you've spotted Friends star Matthew Perry doing his brilliant thing in a host of hit films and TV series over the decades. Now he's back in theatreland for the first time since 2003 with a brand new dark comedy he's written himself, The End of Longing. If you prefer your comedy sharp, witty and as black as it gets, head for the Playhouse theatre from February 2016 and check out this new theatrical masterpiece. With Perry behind the pen it's bound to be a feast of the finest funny stuff, with one awed and horrified laugh after another!

Directed by Lindsay Posner, with whom the Hollywood star has worked before, it's the story of four people entering their forties and trying to discover the meaning of life. During one crazy night out in a Los Angeles bar Jack, Stephanie, Joseph and Stevies' lives change forever, and the bonds that tie them become permanent. What happens when a drunk, a prostitute, a woman who's extremely neurotic and addicted to antidepressants, and a simpleton enter a bar? Buy tickets and find out for yourself.
