The National Theatre’s production of BEGINNING, ‘the (anti) romance for 21st-century London life’ (Evening Standard), is now playing at the Ambassadors Theatre. The run must end on Saturday 24 March.
BEGINNING is a tender and funny look at the first fragile moments of risking your heart and taking a chance. Reprising their highly praised roles as Laura and Danny, Justine Mitchell (Bodies, Royal Court; Mr Burns, Almeida Theatre) and Sam Troughton (King Lear, National Theatre; The Hollow Crown, BBC; and The Ritual), are directed by Polly Findlay (Limehouse, Donmar Warehouse; As You Like It, Protest Song and Antigone, National Theatre) in this season’s must-see hit by David Eldridge (Festen, Market Boy, Under the Blue Sky, In Basildon).
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?
BEGINNING received its world premiere on 12 October 2017 in the NT’s Dorfman Theatre and transferred to the Ambassadors Theatre in the West End for a 10-week run on 15 January 2018.
With design by Fly Davis, lighting design by Jack Knowles, sound design by Paul Arditti and movement by Naomi Said. BEGINNING is produced in the West End by the National Theatre.
BEGINNING is supported by the NT’s Official Card Partner, American Express.
