SYNOPSIS:
"It's the best possible time to be alive, when everything you thought you knew is wrong." In Tom Stoppard's time-traveling masterpiece, Arcadia, the time is 1809, as the Coverly gardens are being transformed to the Gothic picturesque and the young genius Thomasina is forming a startling scientific theory while the adults around her are preoccupied with illicit passions and professional rivalries. The time is also two hundred years later, as academic adversaries Hannah and Bernard piece together puzzling clues from 1809 in their search for an increasingly elusive truth about Lord Byron and his connection to the Coverleys. Both worlds intersect and even collide as the quests for knowledge and passion run their courses, and everyone is forced to confront the reality of the attraction Newton left out.

First produced in 1993, Main Street Theater presented the Houston premiere in 1996 at its then newly-opened Chelsea Market theater.
