CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).
Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.
T789785005 Rehearsing Brief Encounter is set in modern day Oxfordshire where rehearsals for the stage version of the movie are being held. Two actors, Sadie, a 'resting' soap star and Guy, a young cutting edged director/performer who has just made his first film, are to take the Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard roles. As they begin work on the script they become closer both professionally and emotionally. Their offstage romance alerts the press, who descend to attend a local village hall preview. The problem is, both are in other relationships and the whiff of scandal could be more than they can bear.
