Christina Cole (The Magistrate, The Lightening Play), Jennifer Mudge (Into The Woods, Dutchman) and Lloyd Owen (Good People, The Bodyguard) will join the internationally acclaimed actor Matthew Perry (Friends, The Odd Couple) to complete the cast in the World Premiere of his playwriting debut, The End of Longing, at the Playhouse Theatre, London, from 2 February – 14 May 2016. Design is by the 2015 Evening Standard award-winner, Anna Fleischle (Hangmen), with lighting by Lucy Carter and composition and sound by Isobel Waller-Bridge.
This fast paced, and bittersweet comic new play, will be directed by the critically acclaimed and award-winning director, Lindsay Posner (She Stoops To Conquer, Hayfever) reuniting the pair, following their first West End collaboration on Sexual Perversity in Chicago at the Comedy Theatre in 2003.
Jack, Stephanie, Joseph and Stevie are four lost souls, entering their forties and searching for meaning. After sharing one raucous night together in a downtown Los Angeles bar, their lives become irreversibly entwined in a rollercoaster journey that forces them to confront the darker sides of their relationships.
A sharply written and hilarious dark comedy, The End of Longing, will make you realise that broken people don’t need to stay broken. And isn’t that a lovely thought?
