Arcadia
Canberra Repertory Society presents
Arcadia

31 Jul 2014 to 16 Aug 2014

In 1809, Thomasina is a precocious teenager with ideas about mathematics well ahead of her time. She studies with her tutor, a friend of Lord Byron who is an unseen guest in the house-in the present-a writer and an academic converge on the house: The writer, is investigating a hermit who once lived on the grounds; the professor of literature, is investigating a mysterious chapter in the life of Byron. As their investigations unfold, the truth about what happened in Thomasina's lifetime is gradually revealed.

Creatives Aarne Neeme Aarne Neeme
Director

Aarne started his professional theatre career in 1962, as a dancer in a Christmas pantomime at Melbourne's Tivoli Theatre. 

He has worked mainly as a director and a lecturer in both vocational and academic institutions, throughout Australia and in New Zealand and Singapore.

He has been the Artistic Director of a number of organisations, and has been the recipient of a number of awards and fellowships.

In recent years, he has also turned his hand to television directing.

Aarne has a 30 year history with Rep, having directed a number of plays, from Tom Stoppard's Enter a Free Man in 1983, with Peter Robinson; to most recently, John Doyle's The Pig Iron People in 2011 with Judi Crane and Sam Hannan-Morrow. 

He has also had long term associations with Helen Vaughan-Roberts, Liz St Clair Long, Russell Brown, Jeanette Brown, Mandy Brown, Quentin Mitchell and Joyce Gore, to name but a few.

And he is delighted to rejoin the Rep family once again.
