I didn't know Brief Encounter was based on a Coward play!

It is! Coward does not immediately come to mind when one thinks about Brief Encounter (well, apart from the clipped dialogue that is quite common in his work), but yes, Still Life is the original play. It's part of the "Tonight at 8:30" series of short plays.
I've seen a couple of Coward plays - they were full-on comedies. Must get round to reading more...
