"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.

"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!
