Matthew Perry premieres new play in the West End
It has been announced that 'Friends' star Matthew Perry will star in his own play The End of Longing, which will have its world premiere at the Playhouse Theatre in London's West End where it will run from 2 February to 14 May 2016, with an official opening on 11 February 2016.
Directed by Lindsay Posner, it is described as a "fast paced and bittersweet comic new play" and will reunite the pair following their first West End collaboration on 'Sexual Perversity in Chicago' at the Comedy Theatre in 2003.
"Meet Jack, Stephanie, Joseph and Stevie: 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."
The Canadian-American actor and writer Perry is most well known for creating the role of 'Chandler Bing' in the long running sitcom 'Friends' which has been shown across the world. His TV and film credits include 'The Ron Clark Story', 'Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip', 'Fools Rush In', 'The Whole Nine Yards', and '17 Again'. He was last seen in the West End in 2003 in David Mamet's play 'Sexual Perversity in Chicago'.
Further casting and creative team for The End of Longing will be announced at a later date.
