"Y'know how there are plays...that refresh you just by being there...that remind you why you fell in love with theater?

Arcadia does that for me. The production is a corker. I'm aglow." --Bob Mondello, NPR

This modern masterpiece, part history, part mystery, calibrates the relationship between the past and present in the lush setting of an English country house.

 Stoppard's play is wildly intelligent, extremely funny, and poignantly human.

It started out just like most annual Drama Awards banquets . . .

Little does he suspect what's coming!

Then Suzie appears with an Arcadia playbill. 

                                      Then Strampe appears with 2 Arcadia t-shirts! 

Then Wally appears with a Serendipity tote bag with a . . .  what?   a tortoise!

. . . a tortoise wearing a post-it that says . . .  

"Hi.  My name is Plautus/Lightning.  Read the Couch of Eros by Ezra Chater" (This is an integral part of the play Arcadia)

Here's Plautus refreshing his memory on the play.

 

Am I really getting a tortoise to keep?

Wait!  There just happens to be a copy of The Couch of Eros in that Serendipity bag! 

And three letters in the book, too,  . . . hmmmm . . . just like in Arcadia!

He opens Letter #1. . .   Wow! airline tickets to Washington, D.C. for June 12-14th!

Letter #2. . . Wow!  2 nights hotel at the Capitol Suites in Washington, D.C. for June 12-14th!

Letter #3. . .  You guessed it!  2 tickets to see Arcadia Saturday, June 13th at the Folger in Washington, D.C.!

And here is a box Marie Strampe decorated with all the notes and memories from former AP students, drama fans, and the EPHS faculty--all who donated to Rolf's surprise!

Congrats!  You deserve it, Mr. O!!!

Meet the sneaky parties--Wally, Cindy, Mary, and Suzie!

Plautus' grandpa  (above) and grandma (below)???
