The Start of Something

Written by Jamie Lakritz

“There was blue, and dark, and men’s voices, and wet feet and I watched myself see him. Lying there.”

When Amy finds a letter, lost and forgotten under her floorboards, she becomes obsessed with finding the unknown recipient. But in doing so, she sets in motion a chain of events which resurfaces a long forgotten secret. As three women tell their stories, we begin to realise none of their lives will ever be the same again.

This moving, compelling and often laugh-out-loud celebration of story-telling from award-winning playwright Jamie Lakritz asks who we become when confronted with loss and whether even endings can bring with them the start of something new.

Directed by Sam Cox with a standout cast including Kate Isitt (BBC One’s Coupling).
