New Wolsey Theatre and Wiltshire Creative, in association with Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, will present a U.K. tour of Noël Coward's Brief Encounter, adapted for the stage by Emma Rice.
Brief Encounter will run March 31-April 22 at Salisbury Playhouse with opening night set for April 4. The production will subsequently play New Wolsey Theatre, Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Theatre Royal Bury St. Edmunds, and Northern Stage.

The love story follows a married doctor and a suburban housewife whose chance encounter at a train station's tearoom sparks a love fair that asks if love is worth risking everything for.
