A new musical production of Noël Coward’s Brief Encounter is heading to Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre

Adapted for stage by Emma Rice and featuring live jazz music, the new show marks the 50th anniversary since the playwright’s death, showcasing Coward’s remarkable talent as a writer, composer and songwriter.

Musical theatre performers Baker Mukasa and Hannah Azuonye will star alongside each other as the hopeless lovers Alec and Laura, supported by a five-strong multi-rolling cast of characters.

Brief Encounter will span six weeks at the Royal Exchange Theatre, from Saturday 2 December until Saturday 13 January 2024.
