Presented in the style of 1940s radio and steeped in romantic glamour, this performance will see The Festival Players bring to life an adaptation of the award-winning 1945 film. A story of temptation, passion and forbidden love, Brief Encounter (On Air) is your opportunity to experience the mesmerising performance of an iconic classic.

The plot line:

Trapped in a loving but unsatisfying marriage, Laura Jesson is unable to stop herself from falling for a stranger she encounters at the train station. Alec Harvey is also married and the pair realise that their innocent friendship is developing into something more serious. As passion takes over, Laura must make an impossible and heart - wrenching decision.
