Arcadia is a story about sex, math, and the inevitable death of the universe. The play follows Thomasina, a brilliant 19th-century mathematician whose findings are lost when she suddenly dies in young age, only for a group of bickering scholars to unearth her life’s work over a century later. As they uncover information about both her academic research and her personal life, they discover remarkable parallels to their own lives, as they explore the very house in which Thomasina once danced, laughed, and learned.
Directed by Steven Greenwood. A play by Tom Stoppard.
November 21st - 24th, 28th - December 1st, 2018. Théâtre Mainline, 3997 Boulevard Saint-Laurent, H2W 1Y4.
