Years 10-12 Play – Arcadia

27 Apr, 2022 @ 7:30pm
St Michael's Drama Studio 4 Chapel Street, St Kilda

Tom Stoppard’s much-loved Arcadia is recognised as one of the 20th century’s greatest plays – a cocktail of ravishing comedy, literary sleuthing, romantic entanglements and scientific discoveries. In a stately home in the British countryside, poets, tutors, academics and lovers roam the corridors some 200 years apart, each uncovering their own particular mystery. In April 1809, bright young Thomasina and her tutor Septimus are inventing chaos theory a century too early – or perhaps they are simply falling in love? Two hundred years later, two scholars try to piece history together from the puzzling fragments that remain. Along the way, there will be indiscrete affairs, mistaken identities, hermits, duels and … horticulture.
