“I want to remember every minute. Always. Always to the end of my days.”
Noel Coward’s famous film (1945) is remembered as one of the most haunting and moving love stories ever. Now thrillingly adapted for the stage by Emma Rice, this award winning version has been lovingly received on both sides of the Atlantic. When Laura accidentally meets a doctor, Alec, at a train station, the initial reaction is just that, but then after a few more meetings, the two fall madly in love. But Laura is married with young children and desperate feelings of loyalty, passion and yearning almost tear her apart. Coward delicately points up the trials and tribulations that marriage can bring, and like the ocean hitting the rocks, Laura and Alec are swept away into something uncontrollable. In this brilliant version, the plot is brought to life by a wonderful visual theatricality – a truly memorable and unpredictable stage experience.
