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."

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

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

  • David Eldridge's wonderful play

    23 March 2018

    I am pleased there was no interval,and that the Ambassadors took this play after the Dorfman,and gave more people a chance to book.I loved Laura so much it hurt,and having met my own wife at a party,it all seemed familiar.A very clever,sorrowful,and happy play, containing some good insights and original versions of familiar themes.(being lonely,having plenty of imagination and lots to offer,but wishing you could find someone to share that Sunday with.)Powerful,and memorable.
