Stoppard's richest, most ravishing comedy... a play of wit, intellect, language, brio and emotion.

New York Times

Why See Arcadia?

April 1809, an elegant English country estate… Thomasina, a gifted pupil, proposes a startling theory well beyond her comprehension.

All around her, the adults, including her tutor Septimus, are preoccupied with secret desires, illicit passions and professional rivalries.

Two hundred years later, academic adversaries Hannah and Bernard are piecing together puzzling clues, curiously recalling those events of 1809 in their quest for an increasingly elusive truth.
