  • Overview
    One of ten short plays that make up 'Tonight at 8:30', a cycle written to be performed across three evenings. The play depicts the love affair of Alec and Laura across a twelve-month period. The sadness of Alec and Laura's serious and secretive affair is contrasted throughout the play with the boisterous, uncomplicated relationship of Myrtle and Albert, two of the station staff.

    It has enjoyed several major revivals and in 1945 was adapted for film under the title 'Brief Encounter'. Like all the other plays in the cycle, it originally starred Gertrude Lawrence and Coward himself.
