The Real ThingThe Real Thing at the Rose Theatre Kingston takes a humorous look at love and infidelity. Laurence Fox (best known for his role as DS James Hathaway in detective drama Lewis) stars as Henry, a man of 40 going through what could well be called a midlife crisis, having left his marriage for a woman and not knowing if it's the real deal. Written by Tom Stoppard, The Real Thing is thought to be a thinly veiled self-portrait referring to Stoppard leaving his wife Miriam for Felicity Kendal, who appeared in the first production of the play. This revivial of a multi-award winning modern classic is directed by Stephen Unwin, Artistic Director of Rose Theatre Kingston for the past five years.
