Tom Stoppard's Arcadia

Directed by Geoff Elliott

“Strong cast and inspired staging”
“A dizzying blend of philosophy, physics, higher mathematics, and even higher comedy”
Los Angeles Times

Romantic, funny, and profoundly moving, Tom Stoppard’s meticulously crafted masterwork invites you to unravel the big and small mysteries of the universe at bucolic Sidley Park. There, the intricate interplay of past and present is equally driven by fierce intellectual curiosity and the fickle passions of the human heart.

Running Time: 2 hrs 45 minutes including intermission

“RECOMMENDED: The humor is raw, the dialogue sharp, the language well-crafted…the play excels to the point of divine” — Stage Raw
