Brief EncounterTen years after Emma Rice brought Kneehigh Theatre's award-winning production of Noel Coward's Brief Encounter to the West End it returns, this time at the Empire Cinema Haymarket. Switching between live action and film, this adaptation by the outgoing artistic director of Shakespeare's Globe stars Jim Sturgeon as Alec and Isabel Pollen as Laura in a revival of the classic 1940s romantic movie.
