Henry may be the wittiest playwright of his generation, but hes hopelessly naive when it comes to understanding love and infidelity. Writing about betrayal is one thing, living with it is another. After Henry leaves his wife for another woman, hes confronted with being the cuckold himself. Both dazzlingly clever and emotionally naked, Henrys search for the the real thing in art and love demonstrates beautifully why both are worth the effort in the end. Also new from Tom Stoppard: Arcadia (see page 1 for details)

A L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring: Andrea Bowen, Matt Gaydos, Carolyn Seymour, Simon Templeman, Douglas Weston, Joanne Whalley and Matthew Wolf.
