Performances began May 18 for the American premiere of The End of Longing, a new play written by and starring Matthew Perry, best-known for his work on the hit sitcom Friends. The dark comedy, which played a hit run at London’s Playhouse Theatre on the West End last year, arrived Off-Broadway in a production from MCC.
Joining Perry onstage are House star Jennifer Morrison, Quincy Dunn-Baker, and Sue Jean Kim.
The End of Longing will 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.
