The Real Thing
at The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre
Thursday 9th November 2017
£42.50 All seats
Henry is the smartest and sharpest playwright of his generation. His wife Charlotte, an actress, has been appearing in a play by Henry 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 his own marriage, he realises life has started imitating art. But are they really in love? Is it the real thing?
This witty and touching play, written by Tom Stoppard, stars Laurence Fox, probably best known for playing DS James Hathaway in TV’s Lewis.
Seats at the theatre will be in the Stalls and there will be time prior to the 2.30pm performance to find lunch in Guildford.
