'ARCADIA' CONCLUDES MAY 9 AT NMSU

The New Mexico State University Department of Theatre Arts presentation of "Arcadia," the last play of the 2003-04 season, will conclude May 9 in the Hershel Zohn Theatre.

"Arcadia" presents two intriguing groups of characters -- a collection of 20th century scholars researching the past and an early 19th century household wondering about the future -- on stage in the same room, but existing in their own distinct periods.

The Tom Stoppard play takes the audience back and forth between the centuries and explores the nature of truth and time, the difference between romantic longings and mathematical and physical theories and the disruptive influence of sex on our orbits of life.

For more information call the Hershel Zohn Theatre Box Office at (505) 646-4515.
