BeginningA new play by David Eldridge, Beginning invites the audience to be a fly on the wall at Laura's party. With the party coming to the end, Danny is the last straggler and decides to stay for one final drink. The flat is in a mess and so are they, what will one more drink lead to? Polly Findlay directs the tender and funny new piece, which is being staged at the National Theatre.

About National Theatre: Dorfman

In place of the National Theatre's Cottesloe Theatre, which closed in 2013, the Dorfman Theatre offers a greater capacity, more comfortable seats, better sightlines and enlarged foyer spaces. The National Theatre's smallest space, it was renamed after philanthropist Lloyd Dorfman, founder and chairman of Travelex, who provided a large donation towards the National's £80m future development programme.
