Deemed "the greatest play of its time" by London's The Independent, Tom Stoppard's Arcadia crosses the boundaries of time to present big ideas and compelling characters. Set in a sprawling English country house, this Nora Theatre Company production moves between the 19th century and the present day, allowing the viewer a glimpse at the romances and scandals hidden in the manor's history. The audience sees the action in both time periods, while the characters -- even as they begin to share the same stage -- weave past each other in Arcadia's complicated dance, never able to connect because they are lost in time.
Running time is two hours and 30 minutes, with one 15-minute intermission.
Central Conversations: The theater offers post-show Central Conversations with acclaimed artists and scholars. All Central Conversations are open to the public; seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
