“Arcadia” is set in April 1809 in a stately home in Derbyshire.  Thomasina, a gifted pupil, proposes a startling theory, beyond her comprehension.  All around her, the adults, including her tutor Septimus, are preoccupied with secret desires, illicit passions and professional rivalries. Two hundred years later, academic adversaries Hannah and Bernard are piecing together puzzling clues, curiously recalling those events of 1809, in their quest for an increasingly elusive truth.

For The Record:

“Arcadia” premiered in London in 1993.  It opened on B’way in 1995 on Mar 31, 1995 at Lincoln Center’s Vivian Beaumont.  Trevor Nunn directed a cast which included Richard Clarke, Billy Crudup, Victor Garber, Paul Giamatti & Robert Sean Leonard.
