Different Animal Theatre’s Brief Encounter

The Different Animal Theatre group will bring its adaptation of the 1945 hit to the city theatre for five nights from September 29.

A spokesperson said: “Adapted for the stage by Emma Rice, the play tells the story of Laura and Alec – a doctor and a housewife who meet by chance in a railway café and fall desperately in love, knowing full well that true happiness will always be ever-so-slightly out of reach.

“The cast will play multiple characters, as well as performing some classic Noël Coward songs.”

Brief Encounter will be at the Lichfield Garrick from September 29 to October 3. Tickets cost £12 (£10 for students), and can be booked online or by calling the box office on 01543 412121.
