Description

A group of angry and ill assorted people accept an invitation to make a journey. Inspired by a painting and financed by a mysterious benefactor, they set off to discover the real Arcadia. Or what remains of it. Their journey begins in ignorance and chaos at Waterloo station and takes them through superstition and myth to harmony. In the Louvre, in front of Poussin's masterpiece they begin to understand. 'IN ARCADIA takes that staple Shakespearean theme of appearance versus reality and uses it to explore the notion of paradise' Scotsmanshow more
