About this show

The British are coming! In this must-see limited engagement direct from sold-out performances all over the United Kingdom, acclaimed Kneehigh Theatre transforms an iconic love story into a jaw-dropping fusion of theater, film, and music. In this U.S. premiere, forbidden passion brews in a 1945 railway station tearoom when a suburban housewife, over a series of stolen afternoons, falls madly in love with a married doctor. Ingeniously crafted with whimsical humor, dreamy romance, and stunning multimedia effects and hailed by critics as "a first-class return to romance" (Daily Telegraph) and "an imaginative feast" (Daily Express), Brief Encounter was nominated for four Laurence Olivier Awards, including Best Entertainment and Best Director.
