The End of Longing began performances May 18, 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.
