Beginning

Beginning transferred to the West End in January 2018

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?

Following a critically acclaimed run in the Dorfman Theatre, Justine Mitchell and Sam Troughton reprised their roles as Laura and Danny in the season’s must-see smash-hit at the Ambassadors Theatre for 10 weeks only.

Polly Findlay directs this new play by David Eldridge (Market Boy, Under the Blue Sky, In Basildon). Tender and funny, it’s an intimate look at the first fragile moments of risking your heart and taking a chance.
