Noël Coward’s Brief Encounter adapted for the stage by Emma Rice

22nd - 26th Nov 2022

Event info

Start Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: £15.00 Concessions: £13.00 Children: £13.00


Description

After a chance meeting in a provincial railway station café, respectable housewife Laura and local doctor Alec tumble head-first into a passionate love affair.

In their stolen time together, their whirlwind romance is urgent and all-encompassing, but are they willing to risk everything for love and tear their lives apart?

Emma Rice’s sparklingly romantic script reimagines Noël Coward’s famous tale of love and heartache for the stage. Playful and funny, the drama also retains the bittersweet romance of the original, and includes Coward’s songs which provide a perfect period musical backdrop.

__________

Adapted from the play STILL LIFE and the screenplay BRIEF ENCOUNTER, both by Noël Coward.

Originally commissioned by David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers & Cineworld who first presented Kneehigh’s production of Noël Coward’s Brief Encounter in 2008.

Songs and verse are by Noël Coward.

The original music and musical arrangements are by Stu Barker.

This amateur production of “Brief Encounter” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
