The Real Thing

The Real Thing

The Old Vic, London, SE1 8NB
  • Max Webster's adaptation of THE REAL THING is coming to The Old Vic for a limited run this autumn.

    Annie is an actress, Henry is a playwright, and fiction is the backdrop to life. Hardly a recipe for a faithful marriage, especially when it started as an affair.

    But does it matter how it began if what they have is the real thing?

    Diving through layers of play and performance, reality and deceit, THE REAL THING is Tom Stoppard’s kaleidoscopic comedy of love, infidelity and the stories we tell. Starring James McArdle (Mare of Easttown, The Tragedy of Macbeth), Bel Powley (A Small Light, The Morning Show), Oliver Johnstone (All My SonsHenry V) and Susan Wokoma (Cheaters, Enola Holmes 1 and 2), directed by Max Webster (Macbeth, Life of Pi).
