Department of Performing Arts presents 'Arcadia' – April 11-14

A comedic masterwork written by Tom Stoppard, one of the greatest playwrights of the modern era will be performed April 11-14 in the Center for the Arts/McCrary Theatre during a weekend run that includes a Sunday matinee. 

The Department of Performing Arts is presenting four performances of “Arcadia,” a witty and thought-provoking play by Tom Stoppard, considered one of the greatest playwrights of the modern era. 

In “Arcadia,” Stoppard adroitly moves the action between the early 19th and late 20th centuries, while always remaining within the same room of a grand English estate. Across these centuries he weaves romance, sex, mathematics, literature, academia, garden design, chaos theory, physics and a tortoise into a compelling mystery that leaves many of the characters scratching their heads even as the audience learns the full truth.

​The production is directed by Fred Rubeck, professor of performing arts. The performances will take place in McCrary Theatre in the Center for the Arts, Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.

Admission: $15 or Elon ID. Tickets now available at the Center for the Arts Box Office. For information, call (336) 278-5610.
