Brief Encounter

Role Alec Harvey
Director Emma Rice
Kneehigh Theatre - National Tour
In 1946 the classic film Brief Encounter premiered at the cinema on the Haymarket. In 2008 the Kneehigh Theatre production of Noël Coward's Brief Encounter was brought back to the cinema on the Haymarket, this time Live on Stage! Brief Encounter is now on a US tour, visiting San Francisco, New York & Minneapolis.

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.

Milo Twomey played the leading role of Alec in the original UK production and also the US tour.
Brief Encounter

Hannah Yelland and Milo Twomey are magnificent and moving as Laura and Alec - grabbing these legendary characters and making them very much their own. Sid Langley
