The Real Thing

Thalian Association Community Theatre concludes their Red Barn Summer Season with the two time TONY Award winning play The Real Thing by Tom Stoppard. Thirty-two years after it premiered in London, Stoppard’s comedy, which involves people of the theatre, still raises questions about love and art that are as fascinating to ponder as they are difficult to answer. This combination of characteristically brilliant wordplay, wit, and insight illuminate the nature – and the mystery – of love and art. The Real Thing will run August 6-23 at the Red Barn Studio Theatre. Performances are Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm with Sunday matinees at 3 pm. Tickets are available at etix.com. Red Barn Studio is located at 1122 South 3rd Street in downtown Wilmington.
The play begins with Max (Joshua Bailey) and Charlotte (Amanda Young). Charlotte is an actress who has been appearing in a play about marriage by her husband, Henry (Bradley Coxe). Max, her leading man, is also married to an actress, Annie (Maggie A. Miller). Both marriages are at the point of rupture because Henry and Annie have fallen in love. As Henry struggles to write a new work, the players in this game of deceit and lust are all searching, but can any of them find ‘the real thing’?
