Comedy 'Arcadia' Runs Nov. 4-6 at Theatre Siena

Tom Stoppard Masterpiece Explores a Wealth of Human Foibles and Accomplishments

Theatre Siena at Siena Heights University will present the comedy “Arcadia” Nov. 4-6 in Francoeur Theater.

 

Directed by SHU Associate Professor of Theatre and Speech Communications and Director of the Creative Stages Program Kerry Graves, “Arcadia” is considered by many critics to be Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece. This rich and intelligent comedy explores a wealth of human foibles and accomplishments, including gossip about Lord Byron, fractal geometry, academic backbiting, chaos theory, and, of course, romance.

 

Arcadia” takes its audience on a whirlwind journey between the 19th and 20th centuries, where the characters deal with mysteries of sex, science, literature and the clashes between the Classical and Romantic temperaments. The comedy also offers great warmth and emotion as the characters struggle to untangle the puzzles and find the “truth.”

 

Curtain times are at 8 p.m. each evening.

 

Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for seniors and students.

 

For ticket information, call 264-7890.
