Noël Coward’s Brief Encounter is remembered as one of the most haunting and heart-breaking love stories ever told.

Emma Rice and Kneehigh’s award winning production combines the romance of cinema with all that live theatre can offer; magic, passion and surprise.

With the characteristic wit and musicality, the joy and heartache of this timeless story will be brought to the stage by Kneehigh- “the company that has put the soul back into storytelling in the theatre” – The Guardian.

Following an international tour where it opened to dazzling reviews on Broadway, this award-winning production returns to the West End for a limited season.

Brief Encounter runs from 3 March 2018 until 9 September 2018 at the Empire Cinema Haymarket.
