The new play from the writer and director of our five-star hit Beginning.

Every relationship reaches a crossroad some time.

As dawn breaks, Maggie is heating some milk and Gary wonders what she’s doing out of bed.

Maybe it’s time for an honest conversation – but how much honesty can this marriage take?

Following the sold-out runs of Beginning at the National Theatre and in the West End, writer David Eldridge and director Polly Findlay reunite for this raw, touching and funny portrait of a 21st-century marriage.

Middle is the second of three plays by David Eldridge to explore love and relationships.
