Our next production: Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia.
Director Maree Thorpe of Alsager Community Theatre is currently rehearsing her cast for the group’s Spring production of Arcadia, a comedy by Tom Stoppard which will be performed in the Alsager Civic between 26 and 29 March 2014.
Two present day historians (Hannah and Bernard) are researching events of 1809 in Lord Croom’s country house: events involving Byron, poetry, adultery, a duel, a hermit, gardening and mathematics.
Thomasina and Septimus are student and tutor living through these events in 1809.
The action alternates between the two time zones as the conjectures of the present are weighed against the actuality of the past in complex and dazzling style.
Arcadia is performed at Alsager Civic from Wednesday 26 March to Saturday 29 March 2014 at 7.45pm
Tickets are £8 (£7 for under 21s) and are available at Alsager Library or by phoning our box office on (01260) 276165
