National Theatre’s Beginning set to transfer to the West End
Directed by Polly Findlay, the two-hander stars Justine Mitchell and Sam Troughton as Laura and Danny and is set in the hours after party at Lucy’s house.
In his four-star review for this website, Mark Shenton said the piece “packs a lot into a short time”, and is “acted with utter conviction and emotional truth by the gorgeously tentative Sam Troughton and a needy, vulnerable Justine Mitchell.”
Beginning has design by Fly Davis, lighting design by Jack Knowles, sound design by Paul Arditti and movement by Naomi Said.
Eldridge’s recent stage work includes an adaptation of August Strindberg’s Miss Julie at the Royal Exchange in Mancester starring Maxine Peake, and Holy Warriors at Shakespeare’s Globe.
