About Daytona

Maureen Lipman and Harry Shearer join Oliver Cotton at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, in the West End transfer of his play, Daytona

Gripping, funny, poignant and full of mystery, Daytona is a play with not one but two love stories at its heart.  Set in New York in 1986, Joe and Elli share a love of ballroom dancing and are practising their routines for the next big competition.  Despite constant bickering, the love they have shared for nearly fifty years is clear. Then one night, out of the blue, Joe's long-lost brother Billy bursts back into their lives with an extraordinary story to tell.

‘Maureen Lipman gets the opportunity to remind us what a fine and subtle actor she is’ Guardian 

★★★★ ‘A marvellous moving play’ Whats On Stage
