First presented as part of the Tonight at 8:30 series in 1936, a success in London and New York, this short play was the basis for the hit movie Brief Encounter. In a suburban rail station, Dr. Harvey removes a cinder from Laura’s eye and they fall in love. Subsequent weekly meetings over tea, scenes debating respectability or love, and some sentimental moments transpire before they decide they must part forever. He is accepting a faraway post and she must return to a circumspect life. At their last meeting, a chattering friend swoops down and there is no chance for a final goodbye.
