BRATTLEBORO- Vermont Theater Company presents Tom Stoppard’s award-winning play “Arcadia” on March 27, 28, and 29 at the New England Youth Theater. Jodi Clark is the director and the cast includes Jessica Gelter, Adrienne Major, Francis Hauert, Sophie Gorjance, Jay Gelter, Veda Crewe, Robert Wellington, Brandon Batham, Ian Hefele, Burt Tepfer, Ian Mahoney, and Aja Selbach.

“Arcadia” deftly and wittily explores the world of 1809 country estate life in England from the perspectives of those living at that time and their descendants in 1995. Vivacious characters, snappy dialogue, and seamless scene changes between these two time periods invite the audience to explore family drama, quantum physics, complex mathematics, landscape gardening, and the larger question of: What’s it all about, anyway?

“Arcadia” was first performed at the Lyttelton Theatre, Royal National Theatre, in London in 1993, and received the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Play. The first United States production opened in New York in March 1995. It was directed by Trevor Nunn, starred Billy Crudup, and was Paul Giamatti’s Broadway debut. That production earned the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, and was nominated for the 1995 Tony Award for Best Play.

General admission is $15; students, seniors, and everyone on Thursdays and Sundays is $12. For reservations call (802) 258-1344 or online at For more information visit
