WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Live on stage and on film at the Empire Cinema in London’s West End.

‘I’m a happily married woman. Or rather I was until a few weeks ago. This is my whole world and it’s enough, or rather it was until a few weeks ago.’

Your heart dances. The world seems strange and new. You want to laugh and skip and fall forever… You are in love. You are in love with the wrong person.

‘That’s how it all began. Just by me getting a little piece of grit in my eye.’

Noel Coward’s Brief Encounter is remembered as one of the most haunting love stories ever. This award-winning Kneehigh production has triumphed in the West End, toured the globe and opened to dazzling reviews on Broadway. It has won the hearts of audiences and critics alike.

‘I want to remember every minute. Always. Always to the end of my days.'
