Description

One of the most acclaimed theatrical productions seen all over the world returns to Birmingham.

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 film Brief Encounter is remembered as one of the most haunting love stories ever. Since opening at The REP, 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.

Reviews

Surely the most enchanting work of stagecraft ever inspired by a movie

The New York Times

Emma Rice’s staging of Noël Coward’s screenplay is a delight. Moving, funny, gripping and even at its most inventive, true to the original and its all-English heart

The Times

An absolute triumph. Moving, funny, jaw-droppingly inventive...I haven't had such a good time in years

The Independent

The company that has put the soul back into storytelling in the theatre

The Guardian
