Historians spend ages debating just what was going through the minds of people living in the past - but can they ever really solve that mystery? Arcadia, a play by famed writer Tom Stoppard, explores that question by taking audiences on a trip back and forth through time. Meet a group of academics in 1809 - who are being studied by academics in 1993. Get Broadway tickets to see the play today.
Tom Stoppard has earned his reputation as one of the modern era's pre-eminent playwrights. Works like The Coast of Utopia and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead have defied audiences' expectations and challenged them to see the world in a new way. Arcadia is yet another feather in the British writer's cap - a story that combines both humor and a tantalizing mystery at its core.
When Arcadia initially debuted in the '90s, it earned great fanfare for its unique structure. Rather than a play with one cast, there was, in effect, two: one cast in 1809, and another in the modern era. But even though the characters are all from very different worlds, there are certain things that remain the same despite all that time. Watch the show to find out what they are.
