The National Theatre production of David Eldridge’s Beginning will play a limited engagement in the West End. Performances will begin January 15, 2018, at London’s Ambassadors Theatre, where the 10-week run will officially open January 23.
Justine Mitchell and Sam Troughton will reprise their performances as Laura and Danny, respectively, from the world premiere at the National’s Dorfman Theatre, which runs through November 14.
The play takes place in a North London flat, where Danny is the last guest at Laura’s house party. Amid the remains of a wild night and a clear political divide, the two attempt to find common ground.
Beginning features sets and costumes by Fly David, lighting design by Jack Knowles, sound design by Paul Arditti, and movement by Naomi Said.
