ARCADIA, which the Royal Institution of Great Britain named one of the best science-related works ever written, follows two groups of people who were residents and guests of an English country house some 200 years apart with the action alternating between the early 19th Century and present day. ARCADIA explores the nature of truth and time, the difference between classical and romantic temperaments, and the disruptive influence of sex on our life orbits– the one law of attraction that Isaac Newton forgot.
ARCADIA runs November 16 – December 16. For more information visit prometheantheatre.org.
