Love on stage and on film in London's West End. Through September 2, 2018.

‘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.’

Noël 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.

"Surely the most enchanting work of stagecraft ever inspired by a movie" —New York Times

"Emma Rice's bittersweet romance is a great night out" ★★★★☆ —The Guardian
