'There are tender moments, but this production tickles the ribs and awakens the senses more than it breaks the heart' - The Times


'Brief Encounter may feel like standard fare for Kneehigh, perhaps, but is still a joy ride for punters looking for a master-crafted piece of storytelling' - What'sOnStage


This is a truly stunning revival that revels in its special surroundings, and we can but hope that its latest encounter with the West End is not too brief' - Broadway World UK
