The Real Thing

22 - 24 June

Witham Dramatic Club

The Real Thing

by Tom Stoppard

Tom Stoppard's mastery of the English language is to the fore in this clever and witty play that seeks to establish what actually is the 'Real Thing'. Based around the lives of a writer, his wife, his lover and her husband, the deliberatley ambiguous title simultaneously refers to love, relationships and even the blurred division between real life and fiction.
