Snow Day

Unfortunately, since the University is officially closed all activity on campus must cease, so we can NOT have a performance of Arcadia tonight Friday February 8, 2013.

The Saturday February 9 performance will go on as planned. I will confirm tomorrow morning.

There is the potential to add another performance date. I will confirm this later today.

Those who had tickets for tonight (Friday) can exchange them for no cost for Saturday’s show, or if we add another date for that show. If they would like to have the tickets refunded they may e-mail me at drama@utmsu.ca to do so.

Arcadia by Tom Stoppard

The University of Toronto Mississauga Drama Club Presents…

Arcadia
By Tom Stoppard

Directed by Owen Fawcett
Assistant Directed by Laura McCallum

Thursday February 7
Friday February 8
Saturday February 9
7:30 p.m.

“We shed as we pick up, like travellers who must carry everything in their arms, and what we let fall will be picked up by those behind”. In a room off of the garden of the Croom Estate, two academics both attempt to uncover the deeply rooted past of the house. Hannah is trying to discover the identity of a mysterious hermit whose genius has left a legacy in the form of a small hut in the Croom garden. Bernard, on the other hand, is passionately trying to prove the past presence of Lord Byron himself at Sidley Park. As they struggle to interpret the clues left behind, the real story is simultaneously revealed as the past inhabitants of Sidley Park come to life, revealing a passionate tale of sex, poetry, and death that only seems to be repeating itself in Hannah and Bernard’s present. “Only in Arcadia here am I”
