The End of History

June 27 - August 10, 2019

A brand new drama from the mind of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

Why See The End of History?

PlaysOff West End

Newbury 1997.

From the minds behind Harry Potter and the Cursed Child comes a brand new domestic drama, where the intricacies of familial relationships come under the microscope. Playwright Jack Thorne leaves the world of Hogwarts magic behind as he transports us to Newbury, 1997 where Sal and David are preparing for a family meal.

But this is no ordinary family occasion, Sal and David's eldest son Carl is bringing his girlfriend home for the first time, their daughter Polly is travelling back from Cambridge University for the occasion and youngest son Tom will hopefully be home from detention in time. As the family come together once again, Sal and David become more interested in imparting left-wing ideology onto their offspring, with the trio named after their favourite socialists, will the children come up short?

it takes all of ten seconds to be in its generous embrace...It calls for quicksilver, charismatic acting and singing. It gets it from this versatile cast. It's an evening that, frankly, gets everything right.

A resonant slice of history...and a warm, absorbing folk tale that strikes unerringly at the heart with the timeless simplicity of its themes: home, family, love.
