A stage adaptation of Noel Coward's Brief Encounter is at The Cinema, in the Haymarket from 2 Feb 2008, booking to 22 June (Press/Opening day on Sunday 17 Feb 2008).

In 1946 the classic film Brief Encounter premiered at the cinema on the Haymarket. Now, the Kneehigh Theatre production of Noel Coward’s Brief Encounter is back at a cinema on the Haymarket, this time Live on Stage!

Switching seamlessly between theatre and film using a combination of Coward’s original stage play Still Life and the screenplay of Brief Encounter, Emma Rice, Kneehigh’s Artistic Director, takes you back to a bygone age of romance and the silver screen from the moment the commissionaire opens the doors. The lives and loves of three couples are played out in the famous station tearoom using the words and songs of Noel Coward.

The cast includes Tristan Sturrock (Alec), Naomi Frederick (Laura), Tamzin Griffin (Myrtle), Amanda Lawrence (Beryl), Stuart McLoughlin (Stanley), Andy Williams (Fred/Albert) .

It is designed by Neil Murray, lighting by Malcolm Rippeth, sound by Simon Baker, original music by Stu Barker, projection by Gemma Carrington & Jon Driscoll. It is produced in the West End David Pugh / Dafydd Rogers / Cineworld Group Plc.
