Synopsis

Tom Stoppards Arcadia merges science with human concerns and ideals, examining the universes influence in our everyday lives and ultimate fates through relationship between past and present, order and disorder and the certainty of knowledge. Set in an English country house in the year 1809-1812 and 1989, the play examines the lives of two modern scholars and the house's current residents with the lives of those who lived there 180 years earlier. The New York Times calls Arcadia: Tom Stoppards richest, most ravishing comedy to date. A play of wit, intellect, language, brio and emotion, and The Royal Institution of Great Britain calls it: the best science book ever written. Includes an interview with Steven Strogatz, the author of Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos and Professor at the Cornell University School of Theoretical and Applied Mathematics. An L.A.
