OVERVIEW

Tom Stoppard’s ARCADIA opened up on Broadway following a sold-out run in London. Directed by five-time Tony Award® nominee David Leveaux, ARCADIA is a masterpiece of misunderstanding and quest for knowledge resonating across centuries that John Lahr of The New Yorker calls “ONE OF THE GREAT PLAYS OF MY THEATER GOING LIFE.”

April 1809, an elegant English country estate… a gifted pupil, proposes a startling theory well beyond her comprehension. All around her, the adults, including her tutor, are preoccupied with secret desires, illicit passions and professional rivalries.

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