Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia merges science with human concerns and ideals. Set in an English country house in the years 1809-1812 and 1989, the play examines the connections between two modern scholars, the house’s current residents and the lives of those who lived there 180 years earlier. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (2009).
Includes an interview with Steven Strogatz, the author of Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos and professor at the Cornell University School of Theoretical and Applied Mathematics.
Recorded at The Invisible Studios, West Hollywood, in December 2008.
Arcadia is part of L.A. Theatre Works’ Relativity Series featuring science-themed plays. Lead funding for the Relativity Series is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, bridging science and the arts in the modern world.
