A COMEDY musical adaptation of the classic American sitcom Friends is coming to the Assembly Festival Garden from today.

‘Friendsical’ follows the original lineup of characters and crams ten seasons of plot into one 60-minute extravaganza.

The play sees Ross looking for love after his wife leaves him for another woman, and just when he’s given up hope Rachel runs back into his life.

The six friends take a trip down memory lane on the iconic brown couch at Central Perk, and the show features all of the fans’ favourite gags and one-liners.

The play also includes original songs such as ‘Richard’s Moustache’ and ‘You’re Over Me? When Were You Under Me?.’

The play is written and directed by Friends superfan Miranda Larson, who has also helmed ‘Christmasaurus’ and ‘The Night Pirates.’

She said: “It has been a dream to stage and celebrate this iconic series.

“There is something for everyone in Friendsical, from the well-known references to ones that only mega fans will get.

“And if you are new to ‘Friends’ then it’s a fun musical love story that can be easily followed.”

‘Friendsical’ will be at the Assembly Festival Garden until July 31 with performances at 2:30pm and 6:30pm.

Ticket prices range between £15 and £20.
