By Tom Stoppard

Sidley Park, Derbyshire, April 1809. Surrounded by eccentric family members, fastidious house guests and surly staff, tutor Septimus Hodge is in charge of educating Lady Thomasina Coverley, aged thirteen.

Beyond the grand windows are the 500 acres inclusive of lake, where Capability Browns artificially manicured naturescape is about to give way to the fashionably picturesque Gothic style of landscape gardening. 180 years later, garden historian Hannah Jarvis and academic Bernard Nightingale stand in the same room, trying to shed light on the gardens secrets and uncover the scandal which is said to have taken place when Lord Byron stayed at Sidley Park in Lady Thomasinas time

Stoppards absorbing play jumps back and forth between the centuries and explores the nature of truth and time and the confusing and disruptive influence of sexual attraction on our orbits in life.

Warning: Some coarse language and adult themes
