Montclair State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance presents Tom Stoppard’s Tony-nominated, NY Drama Critics’ Circle Award-winning play Arcadia in the Alexander Kasser Theater from November 18-21. Arcadia, which was also shortlisted for the Royal Institution’s award for “best science book ever written,” investigates relationships between past and present, among people, between emotion and scientific certainty.
