"an entertainment of the highest quality" - Reviews etc

"an evening rich in humour and with much food for thought.” David Whetstone, Only In Newcastle

Past and present are comically blurred in an English country
house as the life of the Croom family in 1809 is juxtaposed with two present-day researchers working in the library of Sidley Park.

The pert observations of Thomasina, a teenage Regency maths prodigy, are pitched against the subdued passion of the 21st Century academics. Meanwhile, death lurks outside amidst the shrubberies beyond the French window.

Stoppard’s absorbing play explores the nature of truth and
time, the difference between the Classical and the Romantic
temperament, and the disruptive influence of sex on our orbits in life - a force which neither Newton nor Einstein could explain.

A smash hit since its debut at the National Theatre in 1993, ARCADIA is frequently cited as one of the great plays of the 20th Century.

This amateur production of Arcadia is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
