Set – on watching Brief Encounter

This is not the film Brief Encounter. This is not a stage version of it either. Tonight five skilled performers promise to magically conjure Brief Encounter out of almost nothing, to recreate for you the experience of watching this classic English film, without the need for actors or an inch of celluloid. You’ll be amazed, you’ll be entranced, but you will believe your eyes.

Directed by Neil Mackenzie
