by Tom Stoppard

The 2014 Freshman Show

A Romantic comedy about sex, literature, and the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

Widely regarded as one of the best plays of the last fifty years, ARCADIA takes place in an English country house in the present and two hundred years ago, alternating between the timelines. As the people in the present try to figure out what happened in the past, we see how impossible it is to truly know anything. Full of allusions to everyone from the Greeks to Byron to Einstein, ARCADIA is a deeply smart play with a tender heart at its core.
