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 sell-out run at the National Theatre, the acclaimed five star production of Beginning transfers to the West End from 15 January 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."

"Director Polly Findlay’s beautiful production of David Eldridge's gorgeous new play." Independent

"Beautifully funny and touching." Daily Telegraph

"An expertly scripted rom-com. A glorious evening." The Times

"David Eldridge’s brave, beautiful, intimate two-hander." The Sunday Times
