Amidst illicit passions and professional rivalries on an English country estate, a brilliant young pupil proposes a startling scientific theory well beyond her own comprehension. More than 200 years later, two academic adversaries try to piece together puzzling clues from the past in their quest for an elusive truth. Arcadia is an achingly romantic and heartbreakingly funny waltz of the mind and the body, dancing across centuries.
Arcadia by Tom Stoppard, the four-time Tony and Academy Award winning author of The Coast of Utopia, Rough Crossing (Yale Rep, 2008), and Shakespeare in Love, has been hailed as “the perfect blend of brains and emotion, wit and heartache” (The New York Times). Artistic Director James Bundy, whose Yale Rep credits include Hamlet, A Delicate Balance, and A Woman of No Importance, stages this new production of “the greatest play of our age” (The Independent).
