Tom Stoppard's Arcadia merges science with human concerns and ideals, examining the universe's influence in our everyday lives and ultimate fates through relationship between past and present, order and disorder. Set in an English country house in the year 1809-1812 and the present, the play examines the lives of two modern scholars and the house's current residents with the lives of those who lived there 180 years earlier. This brilliant play moves smoothly between the centuries and explores the nature of truth and time, the difference between classical and romantic temperaments, and the disruptive influence of sex on our life orbits. The New York Times calls Arcadia: "Tom Stoppard's richest, most ravishing comedy to date."

Here is a great lecture explaining the math in 'Arcadia': http://www.umbc.edu/research/blog/2009/05/the_mathematics_of_tom_stoppar.html
