the end of history Tickets
“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?”

School’s out and no doubt you’ve been enjoying the summer which has finally reared its head. The days are longer, and the sun has been treating us to its presence but still, show business is show business, and sadly some theatres will be saying goodbye to beloved productions. It’s hard to believe that after 3 years we’ll be saying goodbye to Disney’s Aladdin; which is amongst the closing West End shows this month. Thankfully, there’s some time to get your last viewings in and wave the Genie off as he is set free one last time. Read below to see what else is closing in August 2019…

London Theatre Review: the end of history... at the Royal Court Theatre
Jack Thorne is one of Britain’s most acclaimed playwrights and screenwriters but even for him, a family history set over three decades seems bold and ambitious and the end of history… at London’s Royal Court Theatre is just that.
