The Real Thing
by Playhouse San Antonio

Apr. 24, 2016

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. Delectably witty and deeply affecting, 'The Real Thing' takes a daring glimpse at relationships, fidelity and the passions that often blur our perception of love.

Our next installment of #PlayhousePotentials will be will held on Sunday, April 24th at 6 PM in the Cellar Theater! This table reading will feature 'The Real Thing' by Tom Stoppard, and was submitted by Mark McCarver. Light bites will be provided, and our bar will be also open! 


Playhouse Potentials at The Playhouse organizes a monthly reading of a script in The Cellar Theatre.

Playhouse Potentials is meant to engage and broaden our San Antonio community of theatre artists (actors, directors, designers, playwrights, and patrons) by introducing newer and lesser known scripts for a one-night only reading. Each month, scripts will be selected from open community submissions, cast with local actors, and read in front of a live audience. A post-reading discussion will follow, where each show will be assessed on it thematic merits, production opportunities and challenges, and timeliness. 

The Playhouse will look to select future season productions from Playhouse Potentials readings.
