Ticketmaster Summer in Stages

Brief Encounter

Author(s): Noël Coward, adapted for the stage by Emma Rice
Company: Theatre by the Lake, Stephen Joseph Theatre and Octagon Theatre Bolton
Running time: 2h 00min approx

Laura and Alec are married—but not to each other. A chance meeting at a railway station hurls them headlong into a whirlwind romance that threatens to blow both their worlds apart.

This playful production turns Noël Coward’s film inside out, adding musical numbers and physical comedy while maintaining the classic romance of the original.
