Bucks Free Press review:
WRITTEN by Noel Coward as a one act play it later became the full length film Brief Encounter. Telling the story of the forbidden love of Laura and Alec both married but not to each other. The play enlarges on the story line by adding two further romances between Myrtle and Albert and also Beryl and Stanley who all worked in the railway cafeteria.
Sheila Jones making her debut as a director was excellent ensuring the action ran smoothly and effortlessly throughout. The audience were seated at tables depicting the restaurant car and the action takes place in the refreshment room of the station.
With a large and very strong cast it would not be fair to single anyone out for special attention, suffice to say that everyone of them played their parts impressively. Lighting, sound a visual effects were all to a professional standard and the trains rushing past the window with the lights flashing through the glass, added to the atmosphere.
The Masque Players interpretation of this interesting play was one of the best things they have performed for quite some time. Well done, keep up the high standard you have set yourselves.
