Playwright looks for The Real Thing in Letchworth

A PLAYWRIGHT’S internal struggle to find real love is the premise for a theatre group’s latest show.

The Settlement Players will be performing The Real Thing on three consecutive nights next week.

The production, written by Tom Stoppard, focuses on Henry, a famous playwright whose current hit is a study of love and fidelity.

As Henry’s own relationships become more complex and he struggles to write his next play, a burning question needs to be answered: will he ever find The Real Thing?

Settlement Player Pat Baskerville said: “The Settlement Players are pleased to present one of Tom Stoppard’s most celebrated plays. The Real Thing is finely crafted, brilliantly witty, genuinely moving and promises to provide an entertaining and thought-provoking evening of theatre.”

The show runs at 7.45pm nightly between Thursday, November 15, and Saturday, November 17, at The Settlement in Nevells Road, Letchworth GC.

Tickets, priced at �7, can now be purchased from David’s Music in Eastcheap, Letchworth GC, or on the night.
