Arcadia

You know that the name Stoppard means you’re in for an intellectually dazzling ride. In this case you’re also in for a tale of secrecy and intrigue that’s been hailed by critics as a masterpiece. Set in both 1809 and the present day, it’s a mystery wrapped up in a love story, wrapped up in a scandal. In its unraveling, Stoppard playfully zigs and zags through many realms, including mathematics, poetry, sex and gardening. A roller-coaster ride that is also one of Stoppard’s most moving plays.

Waiting for Godot

“What are we doing here, that is the question,” says Vladimir as he and Estragon await their rendezvous with the mysterious Godot. The question takes on a cosmic significance as the two hapless tramps struggle to make sense of their predicament, abandoned in a universe of comic absurdity shot through with moments of nameless terror.
