Arcadia
By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Randy Barth

Performances: March 3 – 18, 2023

Location: Greenbelt Arts Center

Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia has won awards and accolades ever since its first appearance in 1993. It is set in an English country house, and takes place in both early 1800s and the present day in 2000. There scholars debate the relationships between past and present, order and disorder, and certainty and uncertainty. The (often inaccurate) sleuthing of the modern researchers is contrasted with those who lived there before and provide both comedy and drama. And indeed, there are scandals, both academic and personal, that keeps the plot shifting. It presents a rich combination of farcical elements, clever wordplay, and omens of a dark future.

A moving and celebratory musical play in which hats become a springboard for an exploration of Black history and identity as seen through the eyes of a young Black woman who has come down South to stay with her aunt after her brother is killed in Brooklyn. Hats are everywhere, in exquisite variety, and the characters use the hats to tell tales concerning everything from the etiquette of hats to their historical and contemporary social functioning. There is a hat for every occasion, from flirting to churchgoing to funerals to baptisms, and the tradition of hats is traced back to African rituals and slavery and forward to the New Testament and current fashion. The conclusion finds the standoffish young woman, whose cultural identity as a young black Brooklyn woman has been so at odds with the more traditional and older Southern blacks, embracing hats and their cultural significance as a part of her own fiercely independent identity.

An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years, the show’s unconventional structure consists of Cathy, the woman, telling her story backwards while Jamie, the man, tells his story chronologically; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show.
