A Noel Coward Evening

STILL LIFE & RED PEPPERS

by Noel Coward
Two classic short plays by a very English genius

Directed by Jane Rawkins

Still Life
Still Life is the play upon which the renowned film “Brief Encounter’ was based .  It is 1936 and the action takes place in the station refreshment room  where Myrtle Bagot rules the roost. Laura asks for her help when she gets soot in her eye from a passing train and as luck would have it a doctor is sitting at a nearby table.  A friendship is formed and weekly meetings in the cafe ensue, but does love or respectability win the day?

Finally Bert, the musical director who can stand it no longer, reaps his revenge..
