Anti-nuclear, anarchist political prisioners; unhappy husbands who are also playwrights and large doses of real and perceived infidelity don't sound like the makings of a play about love, let alone a comedy about love. But critics assure that The Real Thing is both funny and a love story.
The Tony Award-winning play by Tom Stoppard is up next for the Silver Spring Stage, which will present the production on the weekends from Feb. 22 to March 16. Joseph Coracle directs this adaptation.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for seniors and students. Visit www.ssstage.org for more information. The Silver Spring Stage is located at 10145 Colesville Road.
