    "What we're trying to do is write cricket bats, so that when we throw up an idea and give it a little knock, it"

    Art within life ... life within art ... Stoppard's "The Real Thing" explores relationships, life and love in a complex and witty web of playful theatrical games. Henry, a playwright and intellectual, weaves his words for a living, but where does the boundary between writing and living lie? Why does a man so engaged with his art find it so hard to express his love for Annie? ...And just what is it about cricket?
