Brief Encounter...


Last week I went to see a theatrical interpretation of the film Brief Encounter in the old converted cinema Empire Haymarket in London's glitzy West End.

Conceived by Emma Rice it was a nice idea, enthusiastically performed. The 8-strong cast played multiple roles bringing to life Noël Coward's classic train station platform drama. It was perhaps a little twee for my taste but a fun evening all the same.

  1. The production feels trimmer and tighter than in earlier incarnations, there are some superb comic turns from the supporting cast, and the whole thing manages to be unashamedly romantic, while also startlingly poignant in places. Theatre as elixir. Delicious.
