Helen and Diana probably should’ve worked this out sooner – In theory, they’ve both got their shit together. They’ve graduated uni. Landed busy jobs. Got nice flats. Finding love is the next step, right? There’s just one small problem, Diana’s got a boyfriend.
It begins small. Pre-work coffee dates, stealing kisses in the dark, inconspicuous hand-holding – but things soon escalate, and Helen and Diana have to figure themselves out in the margins of the lives they’ve created for themselves.
A new play about love, queerness and trying to make enough room in your calendar to sleep with your best friend.

Surfacing Acts Theatre and Antonia Georgieva

Elisabeth Lewerenz and Elizabeth Benbow met at the VAULTS Writers programme showcase in 2019, and we soon discovered a shared passion for telling female-centric queer stories. We are interested in the intersection of feminist and queer theatre. We want to tell powerful, joyful, messy stories of queer female love, with authentic representation and completely unfiltered. How We Begin is our debut play, which has been in development for three years, a story celebrating all things bisexual and exploring your identity.

Antonia Georgieva, co-producer, is a creative producer based in South London with experience working across arts & culture in the UK, the US, and Europe. She specialises in interdisciplinary work, new writing, and adaptations that challenge the dominant mindset with feminist and queer narratives.
