Still Life / Red Peppers

 

@2K Theatre presents

 

Still Life / Red Peppers; a double bill by Noel Coward, directed by David Northey and Mike Leach.

 

Still Life - the play that became Brief Encounter - is set in ‘Milford Junction’ railway station, housewife Laura Jesson meets the handsome Dr Alec Harvey when he helps remove a piece of grit that has lodged in her eye. What starts as an innocent relationship soon develops into something deeper and more passionate.

 

Red Peppers - A lovingly cynical tribute to the music hall, is a vaudeville satire about George and Lily Pepper, a pair of acid-tongued music hall artists who are on their way back down the ladder of success.

 

Both plays are from Tonight at 8:30, a cycle of ten one-act plays by Noël Coward. In the introduction to a published edition of the plays, Coward wrote, "A short play, having a great advantage over a long one in that it can sustain a mood without technical creaking or over padding, deserves a better fate, and if, by careful writing, acting and producing I can do a little towards reinstating it in its rightful pride, I shall have achieved one of my more sentimental ambitions.”
