The Real Thing

A Senior Project in Theater Studies for Lee Seymour

by Tom Stoppard

The Real Thing

I have to choose who I hurt, and I choose you. Because I’m yours.Tom Stoppard at his most intimate, “The Real Thing” follows a group of very witty, guarded and insecure theater folk as they spin around each other – on and off stage, in and out of love, through pretension and false fronts, searching for some shred of emotional honesty in each other and in themselves. Comedic and vicious, tender and cruel, “The Real Thing” features incredible opportunities for actors and designers alike!Or, to quote Lee, “yeah, the show’s pretty baller.”
