Our last production: Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia.
Director Maree Thorpe of Alsager Community Theatre directed the group’s very successful Spring production of Arcadia, a comedy by Tom Stoppard which was 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 was performed for enthusiastic audiences, at Alsager Civic from Wednesday 26 March to Saturday 29 March 2014.
