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.

Once again presented in the style of 1940s radio and steeped in romantic glamour, The Festival Players perform this adaptation of the award-winning 1945 film, live on stage as a follow-up to last year’s It’s A Wonderful Life:A live Radio Play.

A story of temptation, passion and forbidden love, Brief Encounter On Air is your opportunity to experience a mesmerising performance of this iconic classic.

SUNDAY 29TH NOVEMBER - THURSDAY 3RD DECEMBER 2020    THE VICTORIA ROOM AT LOUGHBOROUGH TOWN HALL

 

Spies, murder, love, and other trademarks of Alfred Hitchcock come to life in the style of a 1940s radio broadcast of the master of suspense's earlier films. With The Lodger, Sabotage and The 39 Steps, Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play is a triple feature, complete with vintage commercials, that recreates a daring train chase, a serial killer's ominous presence, and a devastating explosion through the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring. Join us  once more for The Live Radio Play Experience in the splendour of The Town Hall’s Victoria Room.
