Brief Encounters on the West Highland Line

A play inspired by the classic film by David Lean.

Especially written for performance in station tearooms and lineside venues, the play is now available for events and tours across Scotland’s rural railway network.

The play highlights themes of rural setting, seasonal employment and fleeting relationships. Always accessible by train, it lends itself to staging at rail-side venues in combination with a meal, thus boosting local trade. Although the play was originally written for the West Highlands, it can be tailored to any specific area.

Following a successful tour on the West Highland Line and an ACoRP bronze award for Best Community Engagement project in 2018, the performance company – The Iron Road Collective – are looking outwards to expand their captivating brand of railway related performance.  With the initial run of performances selling out within a week, the play left audiences wanting more and is sure to draw people in and strengthen railway awareness in your area.

Cost: £900 per performance – discounts available for longer runs and special rates for CRPs and Friends associations.
