Every story starts somewhere.

It’s the early hours of the morning and Danny’s the last straggler at Laura’s party. The flat’s in a mess. And so are they. One more drink?
This sharp and astute two-hander from David Eldridge (Market Boy, The knot of the Heart, In Basildon, Middle) takes an intimate look at the first fragile moments of risking your heart and taking a chance.

This tender funny play received its world premiere at the National’s Dorfman Theatre in October 2017. It later transferred to the West End’s Ambassadors Theatre in January 2018.

It’s the tentative (anti) romance for 21st century London life and it is, quite simply magnificent
Evening Standard

Written with real depth of insight, humour, compassion and a keen sense of the ridiculous
The Independent

One of the funniest, touching, most excruciating plays of seduction
