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 a mess and so are they, what will one more drink lead to? Polly Findlay directs the tender and funny piece, which transfers to the Ambassadors Theatre after a sell-out run at the National in 2017.

 

About Ambassadors Theatre

From the outside, it appears impossible that an entire West End theatre could be fitted into this two-storey Soho corner. The Ambassadors is among the most notable achievements of the great theatrical architect W.G.R. Sprague; not only is there a medium-sized auditorium, cheerfully over-decorated, but the whole Louis XVI interior feels spacious and airy. More about Ambassadors Theatre
