Designed by Anna Fleischle
"...Fleischle's set design does an elegant job of communicating a sense of isolation in a bustling metropolis." Charlie Burton, GQ Magazine.
"Anna Fleischle's set design, using fast changing projected scenes of a metropolis with skyscrapers and crowded streets, punctuates the sense of inner confusion some of the characters seem to be in...the [bar] adds to the impersonal reality in which these characters live" Rivka Jacobson, PlaysToSee.com
THE END OF LONGING, a new play written by and starring internationally acclaimed actor Matthew Perry. Directed by critically acclaimed and award-winning director, Lindsay Posner.
A hilarious and dark comedy, THE END OF LONGING follows the story of 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 irreversibily entwined in a rollercoaster journey that forces them to confront the darker sides of their relationships.
THE END OF LONGING will be at the Playhouse Theatre for a strictly limited run from Monday 21st March until Saturday 14th May 2016. Previews from February 2016. For more information and to book tickets, click here.
