Arcadia moves back and forth between 1809 and the present
at the elegant estate owned by the Coverly family. The 1809 scenes reveal a household in transition.
As the Arcadian landscape is being transformed into picturesque Gothic gardens, complete with a hermitage,
thirteen year-old Lady Thomasina and her tutor delve into intellectual and romantic issues.
Present day scenes depict the Coverly descendants and two competing scholars who are researching a possible
scandal at the estate in 1809 involving Lord Byron. This brilliant play moves smoothly between the centuries
and explores the nature of truth and time, the difference between classical and romantic temperaments,
and the disruptive influence of sex on our life orbits, the attraction Newton left out.
"Stoppard's richest, most ravishing comedy to date, a play of wit,
intellect, language, brio and...emotion. It's like a dream of levitation:
you're instantaneously aloft, soaring, banking, doing loop the loops... The
playwright is a daredevil pilot who's steady at the controls." - The New

Original short plays by school children. First and second graders wrote the plays and the college kids are directing and performing under the watchful eye of an instructor.
by Horton Foote, Directed by Troy Nickerson
A Play about the myth of an idea called home. Mr. Foote creates characters, nearly all of whom come from the same stretch of provincial Texas, who long to believe in the reality of real estate, that a house is a fortress and an anchor in a world of threatening flux. But the playwright is as merciless as he is compassionate. Home is only an illusion for his people, and everyone is ultimately an orphan, even when surrounded by family.” —NY Times “I’ve never been more deeply moved by a theatrical production of any kind.” —Wall Street Journal
Stage Left Theater Association is a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible nonprofit organization committed to presenting works of social, political and intellectual merit. Your generous support for Stage Left and the arts in Spokane is greatly appreciated.
Our group is founded on the belief that live theater provides a mechanism for interpersonal interaction not provided by television and movies, that it should be a force for political, intellectual and social stimulation, and should be relevant to the daily lives of the audience and the players. We seek to broaden the involvement of the general population by engaging issues of topical value and stimulating the analysis and discussion of the structure and goals of society.
