Arcadia  | Open: 11/06/05 Close: 11/20/05
Tom Stoppard's engaging tale is equal parts mystery, comedy, and romance, set in two different time periods. In 1809 England, the roving eye of a rakish tutor causes him to be challenged to a duel, while his 13-year-old charge may have discovered the ultimate fate of the universe. Meanwhile in the present day, scholars pour over faded records to uncover what really happened nearly 200 years earlier. The stories from past and present echo and intertwine, as all involved search for hope and meaning in literature, in science, in art, and in each other.

The production is an Equity Showcase
