Beginning seems to have actually matured. It's grown in power. I found myself welling up three times and at one point actually crying. As my nephew said, "They weren't just waiting for the other person to stop talking. It was like two people actually talking to each other" #ntBeginning @deldridgewriter @Ambtheatre @NationalTheatre ...

Last Saturday afternoon my nephew William, his fiancée Jaye, Stuart and I went to see Dave Eldridge's marvellous play Beginning that has transferred to the Ambassadors Theatre in London's glitzy West End.

Stuart and I had seen it before so I refer you to my previous (glowing) review. Although this time it affected me much more. The play seems to have actually matured. It's grown in power. I found myself welling up three times and at one point actually crying. That's when I wasn't laughing out loud of course.

"Did you enjoy it?" I asked William afterwards.
"Yeah. They weren't just waiting for the other person to stop talking. It was like two people actually talking to each other", he said.
And I couldn't put it better myself.
"I guess he didn't just want to get in there though as he'd been burnt. Must have been some fire! She was a bit desperate though"
Millennials, eh?
