See it you should. ‘Arcadia’ is propelled by genuine, panting passion. A terrific play.
The New York Times
ARCADIA is set in April 1809 in a stately home in Derbyshire. Thomasina, a gifted pupil, proposes a startling theory, beyond her comprehension. All around her, the adults, including her tutor Septimus, are preoccupied with secret desires, illicit passions and professional rivalries. Two hundred years later, academic adversaries Hannah and Bernard (Lia Williams and Billy Crudup) are piecing together puzzling clues, curiously recalling those events of 1809, in their quest for an increasingly elusive truth.
A ravishing revival.
ARCADIA, Tom Stoppard’s “dazzling masterpiece, a piece of theatrical heaven” (The Daily Telegraph), returns to New York this spring for a limited engagement in an acclaimed new production directed by five-time Tony Award nominee David Leveaux.
One of the best plays of my theatergoing life.
