Middle Tickets

The new play from the writer of Beginning

Review this show


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.
