About the show
‘When Ross’ wife leaves him for another woman, he fears he will never find love again. But then Rachel runs back into his life… will he end up with his one true love?
‘Featuring original songs such as (He’s her) Lobster!, Richard’s Moustache and You’re Over Me? When Were You Under Me?, the gang take on naked Thursdays, a power cut, and a dinosaur convention. What could possibly go wrong?’
Miranda Larson was inspired to write the musical, following the success of The Box Upstairs, her previous Friends - themed play. A huge fan of the show, her recent credits include the adaptation of Tom Fletcher’s Christmasaurus for the Hammersmith Apollo.
