Set in a single room of the Coverly family's country house in Derbyshire, ARCADIA moves between 1809 - where brilliant 13-year-old Lady Thomasina proposes a startling scientific theory to her tutor Septimus, while her mother unwillingly oversees the transformation of her traditional English garden to the "modern" Gothic style -- and the present day, when Hannah and Bernard, two competing scholars, are researching the estate's Regency period and debating the likelihood that Lord Byron created a scandal here 200 years ago.

Within the framework of the highly entertaining romantic sagas of characters both past and present, ARCADIA explores a multiplicity of personal, philosophical and scientific themes, examinging the principles of mathematics, literary analysis, historical research, sex, and garden landscape.


We are no longer taking advance reservations for remaining performances but you may still use the form below to submit your name to our mailing list for future productions.

A limited number of RUSH seats WILL be available at the door. The box office opens one hour prior to curtain should you wish to arrive early to claim a "walk-up" ticket.
