London Play
The team behind Harry Potter and the Cursed Child reunite in The End of History at Royal Court Theatre
“No talent at all when it comes to cooking – as you will discover – but when it comes to pissing off my children – immense talent – Olympian talent.” Newbury, 1997. Sal is attempting to cook dinner for the family. She and husband David have pulled off a coup and gathered their brood back home for the weekend. Eldest son Carl is bringing his new girlfriend to meet everyone for the first time; middle daughter Polly is back from Cambridge University for the occasion; and youngest Tom will hopefully make it out of detention in time for dinner. Sal and David would rather feed their kids with leftist ideals and welfarism than fancy cuisine. When you’ve named each of your offspring after your socialist heroes, you’ve given them a lot to live up to… “When I was your age I wanted to be in a band and sleep with Mick Jagger – and Jimi Hendrix – so who am I to judge the choices you’ve made so far?”

    The cast worked very well together. Great performances by all. Good set design

  • Review Avatar Jun 30, 2019

    Brilliant play and authentic theatre. Venue is intimate and easy to get to. Only grumble is the long queue at the bar with only 2 servers 30 mins before the show started. On a hot evening the theatre was comfortable and circle seats were good.

    Witty, poignant and relevant production, thoroughly enjoyed the show. Theatre staff were very helpful and friendly.

  • Review Avatar Jul 7, 2019

    Brilliant actors and enthralling family scenes coupled with deep nostalgia and humorous repartee made for an entertaining couple of hours spread over 2 decades

  • Review Avatar Jul 11, 2019

    Love the show - you could not fault a single performance from this amazing cast

  • Review Avatar Jul 11, 2019

    A very interesting play, which is slightly uncomfortable to watch. Great actors, particularly Lesley Sharp and David Morrissey as very left wing parents trying to instill their rather out of date principles on their children.

    Fantastic. Funnny, sad and informative all at one time.

    Stunning performances all round. Very powerful production and amazing set. Totally engrossing; highly recommend.

  • Review Avatar Jul 19, 2019

    The play was a compelling piece of story telling. Lesley Sharp was the star - a terrific performance. The absence of an interval added to the piece by not stopping the drama as it built up. The only let-down for me was the time shifts over 10 years in the same room/set; only determinable by the pulling down of pages from a wall calendar. The decor never changed, the characters appearance never noticeably changed and the bumbling around on stage for 30 seconds to reflect each change didn't work at all ... it didn't need so many.

    Excellent play, funny and very topical politically! Lesley Sharpe and David Morrissey were excellent. There’s no break which makes it all the more immersive.

  • Review Avatar Jul 19, 2019

    An outstanding play. While scrupulously realist in its dialogue and relationships it also has a poetic dimension likely to make it a permanent addition to the canon of British theatre.

  • Review Avatar Jul 19, 2019

    Although this play has good reviews, we found it was not particularly to our liking!

  • Review Avatar Jul 21, 2019

    Good acting, particularly by the two leads, in an effectively produced and designed interesting play on important topics

  • Review Avatar Jul 21, 2019

    A great production which I enjoyed. I thought all the actors were convincing. Clever set.
