Arcadia by Tom Stoppard has been praised as the finest play from one of the most significant contemporary playwrights in the English language. This play is set at Sidley Park, an English country house, and takes place in both 1809/1812 and the present day. The activities of two modern scholars and the house's current residents are juxtaposed with those of the people who lived there in the earlier period, particularly Lord Byron. Vincent Canby of the New York Times described the play as "Tom Stoppard's richest, most ravishing comedy to date, a play of wit, intellect, language, brio and, new for him, emotion". It won the Laurence Oliver Award for Best New Play and was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play in 1995.Pendragon Theatre is an ensemble of artists, based in the Adirondacks, dedicated to preserving the vitality and enhancing the quality of professional theatre through year-round performance and educational programs.
