FIRST LOOK: Kneehigh’s production of Brief Encounter by Noel Coward

Take a look at Steve Tanner’s first look production images from Kneehigh Theatre’s award-winning production of Noel Coward’s Brief Encounter, adapted and directed by Emma Rice which is currently playing at Birmingham Repertory Theatre until 17 February, followed by The Lowry, Salford from 20 to 24 February, before its West End season at Empire Cinema Haymarket from 2 March to 2 September 2018.

Switching between live action and film, Brief Encounter stars 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. Brief Encounter is produced by David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers.

A chance meeting in a railway station café where they were brought together by Laura ‘getting a little piece of grit in my eye’, led to one of the most haunting and heart-breaking love stories ever told.
