    Arcadia is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
    Arcadia moves back and forth between 1809 and the present at the elegant estate owned by the Coverly family.

    1809 reveals a household in transition. As the Arcadian landscape is being transformed into picturesque Gothic gardens, complete with a hermitage, thirteen year-old Lady Thomasina and her tutor delve into intellectual and romantic issues.

    The present day finds the Coverly descendants and two competing scholars who are researching a possible scandal at the estate in 1809 involving Lord Byron.

    Stoppard’s brilliant play traverses the centuries exploring the nature of truth and time, the difference between Classical and Romantic temperaments, and the disruptive influence of sex on our life orbits - the attraction which Newton left out.
