About Brief Encounter
BRIEF ENCOUNTER has an age guidance of 12+ and contains smoking, loud noises, moments of audience interaction and moderate sex references. See our Content Warning Document for more information (contains spoilers!)
A dazzling adaptation of the greatest love story of all time.
When a chance encounter in a train station tearoom kindles a timid, yet passionate, love affair between a married doctor and a suburban housewife, the two are forced to question if it’s worth risking everything for the sake of love.
Tender and joyous, this show has all the drama of the original masterpiece with added live music, comedy and spectacle, taking you on a rollercoaster ride through all of love’s beautiful complications.
Brief Encounter is adapted by award-winning theatre-maker Emma Rice, directed by the New Wolsey Theatre’s new Chief Executive Douglas Rintoul (Made in Dagenham, Private Lives and All My Sons) and brought to you by the producers behind The Ladykillers and Guys and Dolls.
