Every relationship reaches a crossroad some time.
As dawn breaks, Maggie is heating some milk and Gary wonders what she’s doing out of bed.
Maybe it’s time for an honest conversation – but how much honesty can this marriage take?
Following their five-star production of Beginning, which played sold-out runs at the National Theatre and in the West End, writer David Eldridge and director Polly Findlay reunite for this raw, touching and funny portrait of a 21st-century marriage.
Middle is the second of three plays by David Eldridge to explore love and relationships.
A painfully sharp drama
Heartfelt, nuanced performances
Marital and midlife reckoning brings gags and gripes
The writing is at times wonderfully acute and funny
Middle is a bit of a muddle
Claire Rushbrook and Daniel Ryan give nuanced performances
Marital drama is sincere but too conservative
Astoundingly crafted direction
Heartfelt but directionless
Meandering, middling study of marital strife
