Following its hugely successful National Theatre and West-End run, this tender, hopeful and funny two-hander is a celebration of the unexpected, a delightful observation of the complexity of meeting someone for the first time and the bravery of stepping into the unknown.

Erin Shanagher (THE BAY) and Gerard Kearns (FLOODLIGHTS, SHAMELESS) star as Laura and Danny who, in this post-party chaos, cautiously wind their way through clumsy silences, empty bottles and near-kisses. Directed by RET Joint Artistic Director Bryony Shanahan, BEGINNING is a beautifully intimate play bursting with humour and full of heart and demonstrates just how unpredictable life can really be.  

Laura and Danny slowly orbit each other – awkward moves, first dances, fish finger butties, embarrassing banter. Together they navigate a life-time of possibilities, and as night shifts into day, an unthinkable, impossible and crazy opportunity becomes clear. Amongst the missteps and butterflies there might just be.... a beginning?

David Eldridge is widely regarded as one of the prominent playwriting voices of his generation, whose award-winning plays have premiered across the UK and played across the world. His past work for the Exchange has included new versions of Ibsen’s THE LADY FROM THE SEA and Strindberg’s MISS JULIE. 

Joint Artistic Director Bryony Shanahan directs this intimate, beautiful, funny play about risking it all and wearing your heart firmly on your sleeve. BEGINNING was a smash-hit when it premiered at the National Theatre in 2017.
