Brief Encounter

Directed by Emma Rice, Brief Encounter plays live on stage at the Empire Cinema in London's West End.

One of the most haunting love stories ever, Noel Coward's Brief Encounter has won the hearts of audiences and critics alike.

Now, catch the award-winning Kneehigh production, a triumph in the West End that has toured the globe and opened on Broadway to dazzling reviews.

Jim Sturgeon plays Alec, with Isabel Pollen as Laura, and Lucy Thackeray as Myrtle. The cast also features Beverly Rudd as Beryl, Jos Slovick as Stanley, and Dean Nolan as Fred/Albert. Katrina Kleve and Peter Dukes also appear in this delightful staging produced by The Old Vic, David Pugh, Dafydd Rogers, and Jenny and Steve Wiener.

"Emma Rice's staging of Noel Coward's screenplay is a total delight. Moving, funny, gripping and even at its most inventive, true to the original and its all-English heart." - The Times

"Surely the most enchanting work of stagecraft ever inspired by a movie." - The New York Times
