ARCADIA is one of my all-time favorite plays. I haven't seen this production, but I must say the staging concept as described here sounds perverse. One of the central conceits of the play is that, although the scenes alternate between two different centuries, the whole thing takes place IN THE SAME ROOM, apparently unchanged over almost two hundred years. It's the unchanging, concrete reality of the setting that anchors all the complex ideational discourse; to mess with that would seem self-defeating.
