Cygnet presented Arcadia by Tom Stoppard. The play talks about mathematics (fractals and chaos theory), physics, interpretation of history, madness, love, and the poet Byron. Rachael VanWormer (one of our favorites) plays Thomasina Coverly, a brilliant mathematician at the age of 13. Interweaving two different eras (1809 and 1989) in the same house, the play is both clever and interesting.
I liked it, Sophia wasn't that enthusiastic.
