Beginners tells the story of three families trapped in a waterlogged holiday cottage over summer. The children are bored. The adults are down the pub. So far so normal.
Renowned, award-winning writer and director Tim Crouch (National Theatre, Royal Court, Unicorn) presents this joyous and imaginative new play for families everywhere. Beginners is an exquisite, funny and moving story that reminds us that the adult we’ll become – and the child we were – stay with us wherever we go.
An extraordinary Easter Holiday show for everyone who has ever wanted to be understood.
