This play directed by Ceil Herman and written by Tom Stoppard, “The Real Thing” won a Tony Award in 1984 for “Best Play” and another in 2000 for “Best Revival of a Play.”
The play examines the nature of honesty and uses various constructs including a play within a play to explore the theme of reality versus appearance. It focuses on the relationship between Henry and Annie, an actress and member of a group fighting to free Brodie, a Scottish soldier imprisoned for burning a memorial wreath during a protest.
The New York Times, declared, "So packed with wit, ideas and feelings ... Stoppard's most moving play and the most bracing play anyone has written about love and marriage in years.” While WCBS TV, said, "Shimmering, dazzling theatre, a play of uncommon wit and intelligence which not only thoroughly delights but challenges and illuminates our lives."
