This Winter, Stirling Players is staging a special season of the Noel Coward classic, Brief Encounter.

Based on Coward's one act play Still Life, Brief Encounter was brought to the silver screen by David Lean in 1945 and the romantic drama is widely remembered as one of cinema's most haunting love stories.

The Stirling Players production has been adapted by Emma Rice and is directed by Jane Sherwood. It will play at Stirling Theatre for a limited season, from the 1st to 16th July 2016.

Brief Encounter centres on Laura, a respectable middle-class British woman who is married with children. One day, while waiting in the railway's station's tea shop, she serendipitously meets Alec, a charming doctor, who is also married and with children.

The two immediately enjoy one another's company and decide to meet again, however they soon find their growing friendship developing into something deeper.

Emma Rice has adapted this classic into a rich theatrical, imaginative and vibrate piece for the stage, enhancing the experience with some classic Coward songs.

Taking on the roles of Laura and Alec are Maree Andersen and Glenn Scott, two talented actors who are to be married later in the year! Their natural chemistry is sure to delight the audience.

Don't miss this opportunity to see Brief Encounter on stage, it is a gorgeous production, which draws on the characteristic wit and musicality of Coward.

Tickets are now on sale through Trybooking and are priced from $20.
