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.
Noel Coward's Brief Encounter is remembered as one of the most haunting love stories ever. The award-winning Kneehigh Theatre is one of the most loved and admired theatre companies in the country. Emma Rice presides over the marriage of these two as director and adaptor. With the characteristic wit and musicality of Kneehigh, the joy and heartache of this timeless story is brought to the stage in this celebrated production that first premiered at The REP.
I want to remember every minute. Always. Always to the end of my days.
An absolute triumph. Moving, funny, jaw-droppingly inventive...I haven't had such a good time in years
