About This Show

As life imitates art in a tale of marital maneuvering, The Real Thing, by Tom Stoppard, is a sly examination of the mysteries of love and commitment. The play opens with a suspicious husband discovering evidence of his wife’s infidelity. But is she really guilty? A play within a play serves as Stoppard’s launching pad for a passionate, personal examination of language and love. Martin Benson directs.
