Written by Tom Stoppard

Presented by the Tower Theatre Company
The year is 1809. At Lady Croom's country seat of Sidley Park, Derbyshire the orderly classicism of the estate grounds is being turned into picturesque romantic chaos.
In a Regency room overlooking the work, Septimus Hodge is tutoring Lady Croom's brilliant adolescent daughter Thomasina.
Their maths lesson is interrupted by the cuckolded Ezra Chater, a minor poet determined upon satisfaction, after Septimus has been discovered in "carnal embrace" with Mrs Chater.
180 years later, in the same room, a mathematician, a biographer/historian and a vulgar academic attempt to unravel the events of 1809, and past meets present in spectacular fashion.
