Blending theatre and film, Kneehigh presents the classic love story.

The lives and loves of three couples are played out in a station tea room.

The script from Noel Coward’s original stage play Still Life has been combined with the screenplay from the much-loved film version of Brief Encounter to create this exciting new production.
