Book Description

25 April 2011

Characters: 6 male, 5 female

Interior Set

One of the Tonight at 8:30 series, a success in London and New York. The movie Brief Encounter was based on this play. In a suburban rail station, Dr. Harvey removes a cinder from Laura's eye and they fall in love. Subsequent weekly meetings over tea, scenes debating respectability or love, and some sentimental moments transpire before they decide they must part forever. He is accepting a faraway post and she must return to a circumspect life. At their last meeting, a chattering friend swoops down and there is no chance for a final goodbye.

5.0 out of 5 stars Noel Coward Revisited 7 May 2014
By Robert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Wanted this for my own library because a superb actress named Nancy Wickwire did a production of this for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation back in 1964. I collect all the plays she did (she left us in 1974 at only age 48) and this was one I didnt have. Knowing how marvelous she was I am sure she did this justice, instead of the mawkish mess this play is so often turned into The script was in excellent condition and delivered on time. Thanks so much
