Tom Stoppard’s “Arcadia” explores the nature of history, ambition, and love alongside a mind-bending experience of real-time quantum mechanics.

“Arcadia” is an award winning play beloved by theater majors, science nerds and anyone who likes to ponder life, the universe and everything. The story spans centuries, bringing forth a feast of deep themes, including the power of time, science, romance, truth, and the (in)accuracy of academic research.

Two complex tableausx of characters occupy the same pastoral English setting but in two eras: the early 19th Century and the present day. Events converge and timelines cross in this critically acclaimed play, Winner of the 1995 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play and the 1994 Olivier Award for Best Play.
