Mingling the romance of the silver screen with the magic of live theatre, Brief Encounter is a luscious and heartwarming experience that is sure not to leave a dry eye in the house.
Starring Jim Sturgeon as Alec Isabel Pollen as Laura, the production has already enjoyed sold-out runs across the world, proving that even though our trains have got a little more high-tech, there is nothing like a classic tale to keep us rapt.
