July 13th –29th 2023
In the aftermath of Laura’s London housewarming party, Danny is the last man standing… Over a few more beverages and boogies, the pair try to navigate their vulnerabilities, overcome their fears and end their loneliness. Can they be brave, take a risk, and find the partnership they have been longing for?
An intimate and revealing play about trying to make a real connection later in life, with all of life’s baggage and online dating attempts. Beginning is a two-hander that runs for 100 minutes in real-time with no interval. Beginning was first performed in London at the National Theatre to a sold-out season and then transferred to the West End. This is the Australian premiere.
With its perfect blend of humour and vulnerability, Beginning leaves a lasting impression, reminding us that the journey to finding love is filled with ups and downs, laughter, and poignant moments of self-discovery.
