"The part Mr. Perry has written for himself is a chandler gone to seed, a round-the-clock drunk named Jack who is eking his way through his 40s on sarcasm and a last filament of charm."

Why See The End of Longing?

THE LONGING IS OVER

Matthew Perry, best known for his stint as a loveable neurotic in a small sitcom called Friends, brings his first play to New York after 2016's London debut. A dark comedy about four broken souls who set out to shatter their demons once and for all, expect Perry's trademark wit to shine through in this bittersweet story of yearning and attempted recovery, directed by Lindsay Posner.

ONE NIGHT CAN CHANGE IT ALL

For Jack, Stephanie, Joseph and Stevie, life seldom has more meaning than the bottom of a bottle or another packet of pills. But after an anarchic evening in a Los Angeles bar, the quartet band together to confront their problems, save their relationships, and hopefully themselves from the oblivion of addiction and self-destruction before it's too late.

Perry's second collaboration with director Lindsay Posner, following the 2003 London production of David Mamet's black comedy, Sexual Perversity In Chicago, he'll present a reworked version of this divisive work for the MCC.
