About this show

Switching seamlessly between theater and film using a combination of Noel Coward's original stage play Still Life and the screenplay of Brief Encounter, Emma Rice, Kneehigh Theatre's Artistic Director, takes you back to a bygone age of romance and the silver screen. Forbidden passion brews in a 1938 railway station tearoom as a suburban housewife, over a series of stolen afternoons, falls madly in love with a married doctor. This ground-breaking theatrical event — ingeniously crafted with whimsical humor, dreamy romance and stunning multimedia effects — is a first-class return to romance. The New York Times raved that the production is "The most enchanting work of stagecraft ever inspired by a movie."
