About Daytona

DON’T MISS THE FINAL WEEKS OF DAYTONA, STARRING MAUREEN LIPMAN AND HARRY SHEARER, IN A NEW PLAY BY OLIVER COTTON

Following its critically acclaimed world premiere Daytona must end 23rd August at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

Gripping, funny, poignant and full of mystery, Daytona is a play with not one but two love stories at its heart. 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.

Gripping, funny, poignant and full of mystery, Daytona is a play with not one but two love stories at its heart. Domiciled in their humble New York apartment 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 apparent. Then one night, out of the blue, Joe's long lost brother Billy bursts back into their lives with an extraordinary story to tell that will alter the course of their lives forever.

Cotton's compelling drama of buried secrets and tangled relationships received its world premiere at London's Park Theatre in 2013 and this production marks the Theatre Royal Haymarket's first collaboration with an off-West End theatre venue.
