In Arcadia: Celebrating Tom Stoppard's Masterpiece
October 23 - 26, 2014
Join us for a four-day festival that celebrates of the enduring brilliance of Arcadia, a play that weaves together romance, science, mathematics, sex, and so much more into a deeply personal, funny exploration of human experience. In Arcadia will include panel discussions on these rich and varied themes, a high tea, talkbacks, opportunities to mingle with fellow patrons, and special performances of some of Stoppard's rarely-performed short works.

Presented in conjunction with The Taming of the Shrew, this three-part series will draw on the themes of Shakespeare's play to catalyze discussions about today's social, cultural, and scientific issues.
