Superb, Wonderful production. For those who love Kneehigh's work, it isVery helpful to have a writtne script. Wonderfully creative. Brava, Emma.
I love Brief Encounter as a vintage film, and as a play in an imaginative production that I saw a couple of years ago. It's old-fashioned--how many people will choose duty and kindness over passion? This audio rendition is rendered very well. I am a Nigel Havers fan and I thought his rendition here a little forced and not quite believable, but nevertheless enjoyable. Perhaps not the best-ever version of Brief Encounter, but quite nice to listen to.

If you know the film, this will be so familiar. I did find Jenny Seagrove just a little forced perhaps but it was difficult to separate it from Celia Johnsons performance!!!! There is very little in the way of sound effects which I missed but don't get me wrong. I couldn't wait to play this and I wasn't disappointed. It is every bit as moving as the film and I thoroughly recommend this play.
