The Real ThingBy Tom StoppardDirected by Timothy NearSTARTS JANUARY 27
When Henry, a cerebral playwright, is asked by his mistress to ghost-write a script, his life begins to imitate his art too closely. More comfortable with words than feelings, Henry must decide which of his emotions are the “real thing.” Stoppard tackles questions of love and marriage with dazzling comedy and more than one play-within-a-play, sending his characters and the audience reeling between authenticity and artifice, intellect and passion, and love and fidelity.
"So packed with wit, ideas and feelings ... Stoppard's most moving play and the most bracing play anyone has written about love and marriage in years."
~The New York Times
