Henry is a playwright not so happily married to Charlotte, the lead actress in his play about a marriage on the verge of collapse. When Henry’s affair with their friend Annie threatens to destroy his own marriage, he discovers that life has started imitating art. After Annie leaves her husband so she and Henry can begin a new life together, he can’t help but wonder whether their love is fiction or the real thing.
“not only Stoppard’s most moving play, but also the most bracing play that anyone has written about love and marriage in years”
Frank Rich, The New York Times
"There is little in contemporary drama that's as much fun as Tom Stoppard's dialogue."
