Prior to its run at the Empire cinema, Brief Encounter will run at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre from 2 to 17 February and at The Lowry, Salford from 20 to 24 February.
The piece is adapted and directed by Emma Rice based on the famed 1945 romantic film.
Emma Rice said: “I’ve always loved getting lost in the dark, and the cinema is one of the best places to do it. However, a film doesn’t change. It carries on whether you are there or not; performances are captured forever, never altering. My production of Brief Encounter combines the romance of cinema with all that live theatre can offer; magic, passion, surprise, suggestion and naughtiness.”
The show will be designed by Neil Murray, with lighting by Malcolm Rippeth, original music by Stu Barker, sound by Simon Baker and projection by Gemma Carrington and Jon Driscoll.Book Tickets
Mark Jordon has reprised his role as Daz Spencer after three years away.
Mark has spoken of his return to the ITV soap:
“I was overjoyed. I had a wonderful time when I was here before. Coming into the building was incredible. I’d already had 17 years working with a lot of the faces at Heartbeat, and the welcome from the cast was just fantastic. I loved the character of Daz and I loved being a part of the Spencer’s and the Wyatts. It was without a doubt one of my favourite jobs.”
Julia Haworth will play the role of Minnie in Season 4 of E’s The Royals, which airs on 11th March.
Season four picks up after Prince Robert (Max Brown) is crowned King of England, forcing his brother Prince Liam (William Moseley) and recently dethroned uncle Cyrus (Jake Maskall) to form an unlikely alliance. Queen Helena (Elizabeth Hurley) searches for her role in the palace and bodyguard Jasper (Tom Austen) tries to capture Princess Eleanor’s (Alexandra Park) heart one more time just as they are about to face their biggest obstacle yet.
Madhav Sharma (whose previous screen credits include East is East and Entrapment) will portray the jovial and mischievous Arshad. Speaking about his new signings, John Yorke, EastEnders’s executive consultant, said tonight:
“We’ve always known that Masood came from a big family, and the time has now come to reveal a few more of them, of which Mariam and Arshad are just the first.
Mariam and Arshad, who have lived in London most of their lives, will expect a hassle-free move to Walford, only to get immediately caught up in other people’s dramas. On her new role, Indira Joshi said: “I’m over the moon to be joining EastEnders and to be part of the Ahmed family. I’m really looking forward to working with Madhav and Nitin as well as the rest of the cast.”
Sharma added: “It’s really great to be joining EastEnders and I’m excited to be part of the Ahmed family. The first continuing drama I starred in was on the BBC [in The Newcomers], so this is like coming home for me. I’m really looking forward to playing Arshad.”
Both characters will appear on screens in 2018.News article
