Brief Encounter review

Scarborough is a small town with a big theatre, the Stephen Joseph, always bringing us a wide variety of brilliant productions.

Brief Encounter is no exception, but it is exceptional.

From the moment you walk into this impressive auditorium you are captivated by members of the cast in period costume, mingling with the audience.

The pace is swift from the start, keeping the concentration focused throughout, achieved by an impressive cocktail of sharp production, a highly innovative and clever set, a decent smattering of musical performances and, above all, a truly stellar cast.

With not a single weak performance, and every cast member picking up an instrument at some point, this production really could not fail to be impressive.

A brilliant night out for all, go see!

Stephen Joseph Theatre until August 27th
