In The Real Thing, which twice won the Tony® Award-winner for Best Play, acclaimed playwright Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in LoveArcadiaRosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead) combines characteristically brilliant wordplay, wit, and insight, illuminating the nature – and the mystery – of love.

Henry is a brilliant and celebrated playwright. With his wife Charlotte in the starring role, his new play examines the complexity of love and infidelity. But when passions ignite and his own marriage becomes entwined with that of Charlotte’s co-star, Henry’s reality and fiction blur. As he struggles to write a new work, the players in this game of deceit and lust are all searching, but can any of them find ‘the real thing’?
