MCC Theater has announced a week extension for the American premiere of The End of Longing, a new play written by and starring Matthew Perry. The dark comedy, which played a hit run at London’s Playhouse Theatre on the West End last year, began previews Off-Broadway May 18.
Previously scheduled to play through June 24, the limited engagement will now play through July 1. Joining Perry onstage are House star Jennifer Morrison, Quincy Dunn-Baker, and Sue Jean Kim.
The End of Longing will officially open June 5, marking Perry’s New York playwriting and acting debut. Performances are at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, located at 121 Christopher Street.
The new play sees four strangers walk into a bar—an alcoholic, an escort, a self-diagnosed neurotic, and a well-intentioned dimwit. “Broken and deeply flawed, they find their lives irreversibly entwined no matter how hard they try to break free of one another,“ read production notes from MCC.
