Real Things

About 2 weeks ago I went to the Old Vic to see Tom Stoppard’s The Real Thing directed by Anna Mackmin. I’m afraid I wasn’t impressed…probably not in the right mood to enjoy the play. I enjoyed reading the play though, Stoppard is always witty, wise and a great spotter of the ‘deep’ human nature. Two of my favourite plays by Stoppard were on London’s stage this year (Every Good Boy deserves a Favour at the National Theatre – just beautiful, so moving, such a fond play!) and last year (Arcadia – lucky to find tickets for the last performance).

A favourite quote here:

From Every Good Boy Deserves a Favour:

Alexander: I have no symptoms. I have opinions.

Doctor: Your opinions are your symptoms.
