Matthew Perry writes and stars in The End Of Longing, which heads to the Playhouse Theatre in February with Lindsay Posner in the director’s chair.
This will be the first time that Perry has been seen on a West End stage in over a decade and as this will be a world premiere as well it is certain that US sitcom fans young and old will be flocking to the Playhouse Theatre to see this show about life in your 40s.
Matthew Perry is world famous thanks to his portrayal of Chandler Bing in the hit series Friends in the 1990s and early 2000s, the show that also made stars of Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer, amongst others. Beyond that, however, Perry has also made appearances on the stage in Sexual Perversity In Chicago at the Comedy Theatre (now the Harold Pinter Theatre) in 2003. His other screen credits, meanwhile, include The West Wing, Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip and films like The Whole Nine Yards and Three To Tango.
The story focuses on four characters in Los Angeles who are facing the next decade of their lives as they approach 40. They are Jack, Stephanie, Joseph and Stevie and they begin by enjoying a memorable night in a bar in the city but this leads to another set of memorable events as their relationships come under the spotlight.
The show will be directed by Lindsay Posner, who is one of the best known directors in the West End and this creative team will ensure this is one of the most talked-about shows of 2016, particularly with the star power as well.
2015 saw Posner direct various high profile productions in the capital, including Harvey at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, Communicating Doors at the Menier Chocolate Factory and Dinner With Saddam, also at the Menier. He also directed Death And The Maiden at the Royal Court Theatre in 1991, a show that earned the Olivier Award for Best New Play.
Following up Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games, The End Of Longing will make its anticipated appearance at the Playhouse Theatre from Thursday 11th February 2016 (previews from Tuesday 2nd February 2016).
