Beginners by Tim Crouch I Starts April 18th

An adventurous piece of mischievous theatre that reaches across the generations and touches us all.

The story of three families trapped in a waterlogged cottage on their summer vacation. The children are bored. The adults are at the bar. And yet something unknown bubbles under the surface.

This joyfully unexpected and dazzlingly original work inspires us to examine our relationship to growing up. An exquisite, funny, and moving story, Beginners reminds us that the adult we’ll become and the child we were stay with us wherever we go.

The play premiered in 2018 at the Unicorn Theatre, the UK's leading professional theatre dedicated to producing inspiring and invigorating work for young audiences, and quickly became the hottest ticket in London. Beginners was celebrated as “one of the liveliest and sharpest pieces of theatre you’ll see this year [written] by Tim Crouch, a wonderfully mischievous theatre-maker.”
