“There’s my train – Good-bye.”

Two strangers’ chance encounter, or two lovers’ final goodbye: two lives intersecting at Milford Junction station as the 5:43 train departs from the platform.

Still Life by Noël Coward is a deeply touching romance about a fleeting yet tentatively genuine love that provided the basis for the hit movie Brief Encounter in 1945. After meeting and falling in love at a suburban rail station, Alec and Laura meet every Thursday in the refreshment room over tea, debating between respectability or love, and some sentimental moments transpire before they must decide whether to take that leap in the dark.

A poignant tale of forbidden love, polite apologies, and a life left behind.
