Matinees: Sun 5th and Sat 11th June at 2.45pm
After Dark: Fri 10th June

Two hundred years apart, two groups of people gather and talk in the same room of one of England's great country houses. Characters laugh, cry and revolve around one another. Loves are formed, lost and rearranged. History is made, buried and only half-uncovered. 

"Stoppard compresses so many ideas and guffaws and griefs into less than three hours that any attempt at a summary of the play will sound paradoxical. It is an English country-house farce about the death of the universe. It is a laugh-filled tragedy about what happens if you take the intoxicants of poetry and science seriously. It is a play where Stoppard turns himself into a clown whose juggling balls are Romanticism, Classicism, and the meaning of life." The Independent.

Another opportunity to see the play that the Independent described as "perhaps the greatest play of its time" (Spoiler alert: this article describes the plot of the play).
