Brief Encounter

Whether touring spectacular shows around the world with Kneehigh Theatre or rocking the boat as visionary Artistic Director of Shakespeare's Globe, our Guest Editor this week, Emma Rice is renowned for creating work worth talking about.

She continues apace bringing Brief Encounter to Empire Cinema, Haymarket, and launching her new company Wise Children in the South West. Amber Massie-Blomfield spoke to Emma about her timely revival, and her what plans await in her dramatic next chapter.

Elsewhere, another theatre company needs you! Stopgap Dance tour whirlwind shows with disabled and non-disabled performers, and as their van with the set and equipment for their flagship show was recently stolen, see how you can help to get it back on the road. And finally, a video from the archives of legendary thinkers Susan Sontag and John Berger in generous conversation about the hows (and whys) of storytelling.

For more culture gems and competitions (Talking Heads: Stop Making Sense; Trainspotting Live; Once Upon A Time In The West; The Turbans Album Launch Party) - browse our Offers page. As for the best of the rest - rummage through our genre-bending pages where you'll find plenty of haut happenings.

Here's to wishing you a fairytale week dear Players! Bisous! RR xx
