Matthew Perry Makes Playwriting Debut with The End of Longing at London’s Playhouse Theatre
Whilst most of us will recognise him for his role as Chandler in friends, Matthew Perry is soon to make his West End debut as a serious playwright following the announcement of his new play. The highly acclaimed, award-winning actor has written and will also star in The End Of Longing, which will run for a strictly limited season at London’s Playhouse Theatre from 2 February – 14 May 2016.
Tickets are officially on sale for performances and are sure to be snapped up quickly by Perry’s large fan base as well as avid theatregoers looking forward to the opportunity of seeing him on stage. The play, which has been described as “fast paced” and a “bitter sweet comic” will be directed by award-winning director Lindsay Posner, reuniting the pair following their 2003 West End collaboration on ‘Sexual Perversity in Chicago’, which also starred Minnie Driver at the Comedy Theatre.
The storyline will follow four characters living in Los Angeles. As Jack, Stephanie, Joseph and Stevie approach 40, their lives soon take a dramatic turn as they head out for what will turn out to be a night on the town they’ll never forget.
Most recently the US actor has been starring in and working as an executive producer on CBS’s The Odd Couple. When it comes to the big screen his credits include 17 Again, Three to Tango, Fools Rush In as well as The Whole Nine Yards and its sequel The Whole Ten Yards. It has not yet been announced who will be joining Perry on stage in the supporting roles.
