Thursday Theatre presents

As Real as Anything

A serious comedy by Andrew Cartmel

Directed by Jenny Eastop

Gwen and Duncan are happily married — well, happily enough. They were a theatrical power couple, Duncan the director and Gwen his producer. But both of their careers have begun to falter.

Enter Jake and Rosie. Jake is a playwright and Rosie an actress. They, too, are married and have seen better days. Now they are joining forces with Gwen and Duncan to turn the clock back, with a revival of Jake’s first play, the one that made Rosie a star.

But as they drink to the success of this new venture, they are all thinking the same thing…The last time they worked together on this play, Duncan and Rosie had a scorching affair.

Of course, things will be different this time…

As Real as Anything is, a sexy, poetic and ultimately deeply moving tale of love and infidelity.

From Andrew Cartmel, the creative mastermind behind classic Doctor Who and the Vinyl Detective crime novels.
