Arcadia Information

About the Show:

Arcadia has been described by many critics as one of the finest contemporary plays in English and Tom Stoppard's best work. It astutely and provocatively addresses several scientific and philosophical issues including the relationship between past and present, the nature and certainty of knowledge, and the possibility of universal chaos and order existing simultaneously. In a unique and fascinating structure, Stoppard tells two stories at once existing in different times but in the same place. The setting never changes throughout the play, and the large table that is the centerpiece of the action holds items from both time periods throughout. While the time changes a few times throughout the play, the connection of past and present is never lost. In this way, Stoppard brilliantly connects the thematic dualities of his subjects with the hybrid form of the scenery. This play represents the height of contemplative and thought-provoking theatre, so if you enjoy an intellectually stimulating theatre experience, wait no longer to check the Arcadia schedule and get tickets to Stoppard's most profoundly insightful drama.

Plot Synopsis:

At Sidley Park, an English country house, two stories occur simultaneously: the activities of two present-day scholars and the current residents, and the lives of those who inhabited the house in 1809-1812. In 1809, precocious teenager and genius Thomasina Coverly studies with her tutor, Septimus Hodge. Septimus is a friend of Lord Byron (an unseen guest at Sidley Park), and has quite the roving eye with the women of the house, married or not. His indiscretions prompt Thomasina to inquire about sex and the role it has in the order of the universe. In the present day, scholar Hannah Jarvis is researching the mysterious hermit of Sidley Park while university don Bernard Nightingale works on his theories about Lord Byron's stay and his possible involvement in a duel killing. As Hannah, Bernard, and Valentine Coverly, a mathematics graduate student, begin to uncover more of the house's secret relics, including Thomasina's brilliant notes, they start to piece together the past. As the nineteenth-century residents work out their own scandalous relationships and revolutionary ideas, the present-day residents discover the truth about the house's history and gain insight on the nature of their own knowledge of the universe.
