By Tom Stoppard

‘whisperingly close to perfection’ The Sunday Times
‘An undiluted pleasure’ What's On Stage
‘Tom Stoppard's dazzling 1993 drama is crammed with so many towering idea that it induces thrilling intellectual vertigo’ The Times

Arcadia was recently voted one of the Nation’s Top Five plays in English Touring Theatre’s ‘My Favourite Play’ poll.

Tom Stoppard’s undisputed masterpiece, Arcadia, is an exciting new collaboration between Theatre Royal Brighton Productions and English Touring Theatre.

In a stately home in 19th Century rural Derbyshire, secret desires and professional rivalries take hold of the residents of Sidley Park as Thomasinaa 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.
