April 1809, an elegant English country estate… Thomasina, a gifted pupil, proposes a startling theory well beyond her comprehension. All around her, the adults, including her tutor Septimus, are preoccupied with secret desires, illicit passions and professional rivalries. Two hundred years later, academic adversaries Hannah and Bernard are piecing together puzzling clues, curiously recalling those events of 1809 in their quest for an increasingly elusive truth.
Arcardia opened at the Duke of York's Theatre on 4th June 2009 and played a limited run until 12th September 2009.
