Come join UTS Backstage for a special performance of the masterful Tom Stoppard’s finest play, Arcadia.

Directed by rising Sydney talent, Anna Rushmer, the British playwright’s comedy/drama seamlessly intertwines the past and the present, chaos and order, and science and art, in a work that was praised by The Times as a “perfect marriage of ideas and high comedy” during its original run in the early 90s.

Taking place in the one English country manor, but across two simultaneous narratives – one in the early 19th century and one in the modern day – Arcadia doesn’t shy away from taking audiences through some of the big questions – man and his relationship to the natural world; time and how we can really know the past; and the nature of sex and attraction as an element of disruption.

So come along for UTS Backstage’s biggest production of 2018 and enjoy what The Independent once hailed as “the greatest play of its time”.
