Brief Encounter

09 Oct 2013-27 Oct 2013,


Melbourne Festival,


Critics' choice

"That’s how it all began. Just by me getting a little piece of grit in my eye."

This event has finished

A small handful of shows of the 2013 Melbourne Festival program have been chosen for early release, with one of the special few being Noël Coward’s Brief Encounter. Produced by Kneehigh Theatre, the play has already graced the stage of the prestigious West End, London and Broadway in New York. Based in Cornwall, UK, Brief Encounter tells a classic tale of romance that you may have suspected only belonged in a bygone era, with a few songs thrown in for good measure.
