She’d seen him before;

pink shirt, dark hair, grey suit… jaw.

Oh yes, she’d seen him before.

He couldn’t quite place her face.


What happens when two totally different Londoners find themselves face to face on the worst day of their lives?

The End of History is a moving and funny site-responsive play with music which uses a chance encounter to explore the impact of gentrification on two totally different individuals. Paul is a gay party boy boy working in property, Wendy is a single, 50 year-old working in the charity sector. They belong to two different Londons but have one thing in common; they’re both alone in the city.

Staged off-site at St Giles in the Fields Church in Soho, a part of London synonymous with Hogarth’s slums but which now sits in the centre of massive redevelopment project including Crossrail, Central St Giles Piazza and Centrepoint, The End of History draws on its historical past and its precarious present to create a panoramic portrait of a divided city.

Contains strong language and sexual and drug use references.

This production takes place at St Giles in the Field Church, WC2H 8LG. Tickets are for collection from the venue only and not Soho Theatre.

Written by Marcelo Dos Santos and Gemma Kerr, with music by Ed Lewis for High Hearted Theatre in association with Soho Theatre.
