Arcadia by Tom Stoppard at Hall For Cornwall, Truro. Time 2.30pm - 7.30pm.
First premiered at the National Theatre, Tom Stoppard's undisputed masterpiece, Arcadia, is an exciting new collaboration between Theatre Royal Brighton Productions (Dandy Dick, Blue Orange) and English Touring Theatre (Anne Boleyn, The Misanthrope).
Directed by the multi award-winning Blanche McIntyre, hailed by critics as the one of the hottest new directors in the UK, with recent smash hit plays including Comedy of Errors at the Shakespeare's Globe, The Seagull (winning best director at the Theatre Awards) and Tonight at 8.30.
In a stately home in 19th Century rural Derbyshire, secret desires and professional rivalries take hold of the residents of Sidley Park as Thomasina, a talented pupil, makes a startling discovery well ahead of her time, whilst in the present day academics Hannah and Bernard attempt to piece together the fragments of truth that tell her story.
One of the greatest plays of the last century, the Olivier Award-winning Arcadia explores the delicate relationship between past and present, blending history with actuality as the focus drifts from 1809 to now, and back again. Arcadia was recently voted one of the Nation's Top Five plays in English Touring Theatre's 'My Favourite Play' poll.
