The play begins with Max and Charlotte, a couple whose marriage seems about to rupture. But nothing one sees on a stage is the real thing, and some things are less real than others. Charlotte is an actress who has been appearing in a play about marriage written by her husband Henry. Max, her leading man, is also married to an actress, Annie. Both marriages are at the point of rupture because Henry and Annie have fallen in love. But is it the real thing?
“Tom Stoppard combines some fly pirandellian games with an unequivocal statement about the joyousness of share passion. And the result is that rare thing in the West End (or anywhere else for that matter): an intelligent play about love.” Guardian
