A play about an affair. Not a sordid affair but a love affair between two married people. An impossible affair, a painful affair, an unacceptable affair. Imagine the enforced shame, lies and deceit. Imagine the frustration, imagine the loss and imagine the anger.

Noel Coward’s timeless film Brief Encounter is one of the most haunting love stories ever put to screen, and it’s passion, truth and hope continue to endure in today’s shifting society. Now, the team behind Don’t Dress for Dinner, One Man, Two Guvnors and last year’s smash hit The Ladykillers bring their characteristic wit and musicality to this richly theatrical, imaginative and vibrant adaptation by Emma Rice, former Joint Artistic Director of Kneehigh Theatre Company.

‘Moving, funny, gripping and even at its most inventive, true to the original and its all-English heart’ The Times

‘… an outstanding cast, skilful and innovative direction, an ingenious setting and costume design and technical support of the highest calibre.’ Fringe Review on 2023’s The Ladykillers
