Having played at the Cambridge Arts Theatre this week, Stephen Unwin’s production will now tour to co-producing venues in Bath and Kingston before visiting Malvern, Edinburgh, Brighton and Guildford.

Henry is the smartest and sharpest playwright of his generation. His wife, Charlotte, an actress has been appearing in a play by Henry about a couple whose marriage is on the verge of collapse. Max, her leading man, is also married to an actress, Annie. When Henry’s affair with Annie threatens to destroy his own marriage, he realises life has started imitating art. But are they really in love? Is it the real thing?
