the end of history... tickets now available for Jack Thorne's newest play at London's London's Royal Court Theatre
It’s 1997 in Newbury and Sal and David have achieved the impossible. They’ve managed to get all of their children back home for the weekend. Sal is trying to cook dinner for the family, something she says she has absolutely no talent for. What she is good at is annoying her children.
Carl, the eldest is bringing his new girlfriend home to meet the family for the first time. Middle child Polly is returning from Cambridge University especially for the reunion and youngest son Tom is scheduled to be out of detention in time to join the family for dinner.
Sal and David have raised their kids on a steady diet of left-wing ideals and welfarism as opposed to fancy meals. They’ve named their children after their socialist heroes and have big expectations but try not to be the type of parents who judge too much.

I would have welcomed more detailed references to Sally's background and political involvement as her children grew up nearer the beginning rather than right at the end of the play. Brilliantly acted by David Morrissey and Lesley Sharpe.
Jan Phillips11th August
Absolutely fabulous! I laughed and I cried! I was immersed and felt part of the narrative. I immediately wanted to read the script, rich, funny and sincere. Loved it!

Ann Castle9th August
Enjoyed the content of the play very much; I have people like David and Sal in my friendship circle! So many actors mumble their lines these days but the cast of 'The End of History' projected their voices.
Mrs Alison I Goodier9th August
A great thought provoking play.
Segrave Elisa8th August
Very enjoyable and provocative and even handed as regards all the characters except class prejudiced towards Harriet
Brilliant show. Theatre seats a bit snug but wonderful overall
Will have you laughing out loud.
Family issues reflected on stage so close to reality... Brilliantly done by author & actors.
The cast were excellent and the play was so absorbing, it was brilliant! We thoroughly enjoyed it.
