English Touring Theatre returns to Cambridge Arts Theatre next week to perform Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece, Arcadia.

In a stately home in 19th Century rural Derbyshire, secret desires and professional rivalries take hold of the residents of Sidley Park.

Thomasina, a talented pupil, makes a startling discovery well ahead of her time, whilst in the present day academics Hannah and Bernard attempt to piece together the fragments of truth that tell her story.

Olivier Award-winning Arcadia explores the delicate relationship between past and present, blending history with actuality as the focus drifts from 1809 to now, and back again.

Directed by Blanche McIntyre, the production is a collaboration between English Touring Theatre and Theatre Royal Brighton Productions.
