Cleverly plotted, delightfully comic, and incessantly thought-provoking, Tom Stoppard's Arcadia, produced by PCPA, is showing now until September 9th in Solvang. The action takes place in a room of the Coverly estate in two different eras: the early 19th century and the present. The plots of the two periods interweave like the interlacing mahogany marquetry that covers the floor of the stately set. The production keeps the audience wondering how these two distinct worlds on their own linear trajectories of time will join together. When they do, they bend time and action into a twirling circle of recurrence.

Casting has been announced for Promethean Theatre Ensemble's 13th season opener - Tom Stoppard's ARCADIA. Stoppard's play - 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. The action alternates between the early 19th Century (1809 and 1812) and the present-day, as the play's modern characters explore the actions of the earlier-era characters to improve their understanding of the present.

Observing visual art can at times create an experience where the viewer has no idea what they are looking at or what the artist is trying to say but they cannot help to appreciate and enjoy the undeniable beauty of the colors and the composition. A similar reaction occurs with Head Trick Theatre's current production of Mrs. Dallow, a play overflowing with gorgeous performances and staging in service of a script that is at times confounding, infuriating or just dull.

Below the surface of a single day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway lie all the choices that made her the person that she is. In Hal Coase's adaptation of Virginia Woolf's celebrated novel, time is fluid, and memories and thoughts have as much life as present action, as Clarissa's story intertwines in strange ways with the story of Septimus Warren Smith, a shellshocked veteran of the First World War. Dive in.

Written by Tom Stoppard, directed by Cheryl Faraone and presented by the Potomac Theatre Project as a start to its wondrous 31st season, Arcadia truly tests the limits of what constitutes a good show by not only compelling the audience to listen and understand, but also to feel and experience: a mix that makes for one spectacular theatrical experience. The research conducted, the knowledge of the world that permeates the air combined with that which has yet to be discovered makes for an entrancing and intellectual plot, not to mention one that hardly lacks for humor or more relatable human emotion.
