This huge beating heart of a musical is pefect for all incurable romantics this Christmas
“I love you – I love you – and you love me too – it’s no use pretending that it hasn’t happened, because it has.”
In a busy railway station, where everyone is simply passing through, Laura and Alec find each other. Falling passionately and wildly in love in a few stolen moments they live and breathe a lifetime of epic emotions, reawakening everything they buried deep inside. Together they find themselves in a bittersweet, hopelessly romantic, elegantly awkward love affair.
A heart-stopping story of forbidden love that moves to the rhythm of beautiful songs, swaying dance moves, the odd cup of tea and a bath bun. Emma Rice’s smash-hit adaptation for stage of Noël Coward’s iconic BRIEF ENCOUNTER is directed by former Royal Exchange Artistic Director Sarah Frankcom (WEST SIDE STORY).
This huge beating heart of a musical is perfect for all incurable romantics this Christmas.
