Made by TBTL Theatre by the Lake, Stephen Joseph Theatre and Octagon Theatre Bolton present Noël Coward’s

Brief Encounter

Adapted for the stage by Emma Rice | Directed by Paul Robinson Tue 27 Sep – Sat 8 Oct | Various times

“Please tell me honestly if what I believe is true… that it’s the same with you – that you’ve fallen in love too.”

Laura and Alec are married – but not to each other. A chance meeting at a railway station hurls them headlong into a whirlwind romance that threatens to blow both their worlds apart.

This playful production turns Noël Coward’s film inside out, adding joyous musical numbers and physical comedy, while maintaining the truly classic romance of the original.

“Poetic and powerful, witty and warm, musical and moving – this stunning production captures Noël Coward’s unique take on human love perfectly. I fell in love all over again!” Emma Rice 2022
