About this show

Arcadia by Tom Stoppard, is told in two plot lines. Thomasina, a 13-year-old math prodigy baffles her tutor Septimus, when she forsees the concepts of thermodynamics, fractal geometry and chaos theory. 180 years later, in the same country estate, a mathematical biologist and a social historian, try to reconstruct the dwelling's early history. With Tom Stoppard's exquisite pyrotechnics, this Olivier Award-winning romantic mystery explores the nature of truth and time, the difference between the classical and the romantic, and the disruptive influence of sex on our journey through life.
