This year’s Senior Drama production is Tom Stoppard’s 1993 play, Arcadia.

This play moves back and forth between 1809 and the present, at the elegant estate owned by the Coverly family.

The 1809 scenes reveal a household in transition. As the Arcadian landscape is being transformed into picturesque Gothic gardens, complete with a hermit, 13-year old Thomasina and her tutor delve into intellectual and romantic issues. 

Present day scenes depict the Coverly descendants and two competing scholars who are researching a possible scandal at the estate in 1809, involving Lord Byron.

This brilliant play is pure entertainment for the heart, mind and soul. It is a work shot through with fun, passion and genius.

Directed by Library Manager Mr John Cummins and featuring a cast of 12 talented senior students, this is a play definitely worth seeing.

There are three performance dates; Tuesday, 16 June, Wednesday, 17 June and Thursday 18 June at 7.00pm in the King's College Great Hall.
