Beginning Tickets

Ambassadors Theatre, London, WC2H 9ND
  • The acclaimed five-star production of Beginning transfers to the West End from 15 January 2018, following a sell-out run at the National Theatre.

    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?

    Justine Mitchell (The Plough and the Stars) and Sam Troughton (King Lear, Buried Child) 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.

    Directed by Polly Findlay (Derren Brown: Svengali, As You Like It), the Evening Standard calls David Eldridge's masterful new play ‘the (anti) romance for 21st century London, and quite simply, magnificent.’

    At the Ambassadors Theatre in London from 15 January to 24 March 2018, book your Beginning tickets today! 

    *Please note: Recommended for ages 18+. The production contains strong language and adult themes.

    PLEASE NOTE:
    Latecomers will not be admitted, as there is no suitable break or interval.
