Brief Encounter

Directed by Emma Rice

Live on stage at the Empire Cinema in London’s West End.

‘I’m a happily married woman. Or rather I was until a few weeks ago. This is my whole world and it’s enough, or rather it was until a few weeks ago.’
Your heart dances. The world seems strange and new.
You want to laugh and skip and fall forever…
You are in love.
You are in love with the wrong person.
‘That’s how it all began. Just by me getting a little piece of grit in my eye.’

Noël Coward’s Brief Encounter is remembered as one of the most haunting love stories ever. This award-winning Kneehigh production has triumphed in the West End, toured the globe and opened to dazzling reviews on Broadway. It has won the hearts of audiences and critics alike.

‘I want to remember every minute. Always. Always to the end of my days.'

The cast will feature Jim Sturgeon as Alec, Isabel Pollen as Laura, Lucy Thackeray as Myrtle, Beverly Rudd as Beryl, Jos Slovick as Stanley and Dean Nolan as Fred/Albert, with Katrina Kleve and Peter Dukes.
A Kneehigh Theatre production produced by David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers, Jenny & Steve Wiener and The Old Vic.

    I have seen the film many times which is my favourite, but what a fantastic show! Full of energy, great songs, great dance routines and a fantastically versatile cast! Thank you for a great birthday treat. A real treat for the senses! I have booked up to see again in August!

  • A brush with the 19

    The anticipation built even before we entered the cinema, period costume musicians on the steps, then small details as we mounted the stairs and two characters making a beeline for middle front row seats -the scene was set! In true Kneehigh fashion everyone involved showed many talents which were drawn upon to enhance the experience of this 'Brief Encounter'. There was something for everyone -dance, song, wordsmithery, clever use of cinematic effects within the play - an overall feast for the senses. We done, Emma and everyone at Kneehigh... we loved it!

    21 May 2018

    Brilliant, immersive show which transposes the audience into the early 20th century. So many smart, precise details such as the sound imagery and homage to the past film production! Would highly recommend for families or anyone really!
