You didn't fancy it then?
Fancy what?
Getting in the taxi.

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?

David Eldridge returns to the UK's National Theatre with a sharp and astute two-hander that takes an intimate look at the first fragile moments of risking your heart and taking a chance

This tender and funny play received its world premiere at the National's Dorfman Theatre in October 2017


★★★★★ "David Eldridge's gorgeous new play is a wry, funny and touching meditation on loneliness, that private shame of the singleton in the era of the dating app and of fraudulent boasting on social media. Written with a real depth of insight, humour, compassion and a keen sense of the ridiculous" ~ The Independent

"Eldridge has always been the most muscular of writers" ~ Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

"Eldridge is timely and bang up to date" ~ The Times

"Eldridge combines a hugely sympathetic sensibility with rare dramatic power" ~ Daily Telegraph

" ... a brave, prodigious and rewarding experience" ~ The Independent on Holy Warriors

"Eldridge combines a hugely sympathetic sensibility with rare dramatic power, and one leaves this exceptional play rejoicing in his talent and impatient for his next" ~ Telegraph
