Two-time Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor is Henry, a playwright not-so-happily married to Charlotte (Tony Award® winner Cynthia Nixon), the lead actress in his play about a marriage on the verge of collapse. When Henry’s affair with their friend Annie (Academy Award® nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal) threatens to destroy his own marriage, he discovers that life has started imitating art. After Annie leaves her husband so she and Henry can begin a new life together, he can’t help but wonder whether their love is fiction or the real thing.
Delectably witty and deeply affecting, The Real Thing takes a daring glimpse at relationships, fidelity, and the passions that often blur our perception of love. Helmed by critically-acclaimed director Sam Gold (Roundabout’s Picnic, Seminar), this Tony Award-winning play by Tom Stoppard (The Coast of Utopia, Arcadia) first seduced audiences in London and New York nearly 30 years ago, when it was called not only Stoppard’s most moving play, but also the most bracing play that anyone has written about love and marriage in years.
