Henry is the smartest playwright of his generation. Charlotte, his wife, has been appearing in his latest success about a couple whose marriage is on the verge of collapse. Max, her leading man, is also married to an actress, Annie. When Henry’s affair with Annie threatens to destroy both marriages, Henry realises life has started imitating art. But are they really in love? Is it the real thing?
The Real Thing combines the intellectual and dazzling wordplay of Stoppard at his most witty with some of his most tender and touching writing. A clever, poignant and entertaining examination of infidelity, this play is recognised as a multi award-winning modern classic.
Director Marcus Whitfield said: "There are roles for four males and three females in this remarkable play that continually and delightfully challenges our preconceptions and assumptions."
