Shaw Fest - Arcadia August Dates

In Arcadia the passion for knowledge, for love, for truth, for understanding is what fuels the story. Llove is what blooms in this play that somehow mixes mathematics, poetry, science and a hermit. Sidley Park, a large country house, is seen in two time periods – 1809 and the present day – as are the inhabitants and visitors to the house.

“What is carnal embrace?” Thomasina’s innocent question to her tutor, Septimus Hodge, begins the unravelling of a series of mysteries and secrets that are at the centre of this time-bending, mind-bending and moving play.
