House and Once Upon a Time star Jennifer Morrison will join Friends favorite Matthew Perry in the New York debut of his new play The End of Longing. Directed by Lindsay Posner, the MCC Theater production will begin at the Lucille Lortel Theatre on May 18, with opening night set for June 5.

Perry, who makes his New York stage acting and playwriting debut, and Morrison will star alongside New York theater vets Quincy Dunn-Baker and Sue Jean Kim.

The play, which premiered last year at London's Playhouse Theatre on the West End, is described as follows: "An alcoholic, an escort, a self-diagnosed neurotic and a well-intentioned dimwit walk into a bar. Broken and deeply flawed, they find their lives irreversibly entwined no matter how hard they try to break free of one another."

The production will have scenic design by Derek McLane, costume design by Sarah Laux, lighting design by Ben Stanton, and sound design by Ryan Rumery.
