The world premiere of Jack Thorne’s the end of history... will be staged at the Royal Court, in a production where aging family members argue over political ideals. With previous plays including Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and an adaptation of A Christmas Carol, the end of history... will be an emotionally-charged play, as generational differences collide in a family unit where the parents long for days gone by.
David Morrissey will play David, with West End credits including Much Ado about Nothing and off-West End productions of In a Dark Dark House and Julius Caesar. Lesley Sharp plays Sally, previously starring in National Theatre productions including True Dare Kiss, Command or Promise and Mother Courage.
Kate O’Flynn will play Polly in the end of history..., previously appearing in the Pinter at the Pinter season at the Harold Pinter Theatre. Her Royal Court credits include Anatomy of a Suicide and A Miracle.
The cast is completed by Zoe Boyle, Laurie Davidson and Sam Swainsbury.
Set in 1997, Sal and David are attempting to cook dinner for them and their three children, reuniting the family together for a weekend. In their younger years, the children were introduced to left-wing political views, even named after some of their parent’s political heroes. But, with modern-day ideals and new family structures to contend with, who can judge the choices each individual makes?
