  • Don’t miss the triumphant return of Kneehigh Theatre’s award-winning and delightfully inventive Brief Encounter, fresh from dazzling critics on Broadway and capturing the hearts of audiences all around the world. 

    Hailed as the 'most exquisite production ever inspired by a movie' (New York Times), this playfully immersive 'imaginative feast' (Daily Express) transports you to a wonderful 1940s evening of music, heartache, joy and laughter, where Noel Coward’s legendary love story comes alive to sweep you off your feet and leave you walking on air.

    Coming home to the Empire Cinema in London’s West End where it all began, acclaimed Director Emma Rice and Kneehigh Theatre’s lovingly staged multimedia production uses stage, screen and 'joyous theatricality' (Financial Times) to marry the much-loved film classic with the original Noel Coward stage play.

    It’s 'highly imaginative, full of fun' (Daily Mail) and the perfect 'first-class return to romance' (Daily Telegraph). 

    The cast features 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 and Dafydd Rogers, Jenny and Steve Wiener and The Old Vic.
