Last night, Rose McIver went to ‘The End of Longing‘ play in Los Angeles to see her friend Jennifer Morrison.
The End of Longing is written by former Friends actor Matthew Perry, in his playwriting debut. Perry wrote the first draft of the play over a period of ten days, with rewrites taking a further year. A reading of the play was held in New York City in December 2015. Set in a bar in downtown Los Angeles, the play centres around four people in their forties who are searching for the meaning of life. The characters are described by Perry as a “a drunk, a prostitute, a woman who’s extremely neurotic and addicted to antidepressants, and a simpleton”. Perry plays the drunk Jack and stated the role was “sort of an exaggerated form of myself” but added it was not an autobiographical part.
