Beginning at the Ambassadors Theatre

a new play by David Eldridge

15 January to 24 March
Running Time: Approx. 1 hour 50 mins no interval

Beginning at the Ambassadors Theatre

Following a sell-out run in the Dorfman, the acclaimed five star production of Beginning transfers to the West End, to 24 March 2018. Justine Mitchell and Sam Troughton reprise their critically acclaimed roles as Laura and Danny, in this season’s must-see smash-hit; a tender and funny story about the first fragile moments of risking your heart and taking a chance.

The Evening Standard calls David Eldridge’s masterful new play ‘the (anti) romance for 21st century London, and quite simply, magnificent.’

Every story starts somewhere. It’s the early hours of the morning and Danny’s the last straggler at Laura’s party. The flat’s in a mess. And so are they. One more drink?

Polly Findlay directs Beginning, a new play by David Eldridge (Market Boy, Under the Blue Sky, In Basildon).
