Sydney Theatre Company presents
THE REAL THING
By Tom Stoppard

Fall in love with love itself

The Real Thing is playwright Tom Stoppard at his dazzling best. One of his most heartfelt plays, it’s a portrait of a writer of intellectual prowess struggling to articulate that most elusive of emotions – love.

Henry is married to Charlotte, while Annie is married to Max. But it’s Henry and Annie who have fallen passionately in love. Could this, at last, be the real thing? They’ll soon find out.

Through the demise of two marriages, the bloom of new relationships and the pain of infidelity, Stoppard’s characters debate and dissect what love is, what it gives and what it takes. Expertly constructed, erudite and funny, The Real Thing is a modern classic.

Simon Phillips (Muriel’s Wedding the Musical) returns to direct an irresistible cast including Geraldine Hakewill (Chimerica) and Toby Schmitz (The Present) in this hugely entertaining and deeply affecting play.
