The Royal Exchange Christmas production is always a theatrical festive highlight and this year is no different – Emma Rice’s smash-hit adaptation of Noël Coward’s Brief Encounter comes to town.
With wit, warmth and song, this is a heart-stopping story of forbidden love. Laura and Alex find each other in a busy railway station, a place where the rest of the world are just passing through. Bittersweet and hopelessly hooked on one another, they find themselves embarking on an elegantly awkward love affair.
Directed by former Royal Exchange Artistic Director Sarah Frankcom, Brief Encounter brings a lot of heart – the perfect show for incurable romantics this Christmas.
This Noël Coward classic is happening as part of the Royal Exchange Autumn/ Winter Season.
