I have to plan for an essay. The essay is to do with Arcadia. I'm having a bit of difficulty. Why is Arcadia an artificial play?

Please help

    Here are a couple of sites on that play by Tom Stoppard.
    http://www.cherwell.oxon.sch.uk/arcadia/outline0.htm
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arcadia_(play)


    I think in order to write this essay, you will first need to define the word "articifial"... in regard to playwrighting.

    Thank you for your help. What I think it means is why does the play appear to be seen as unrealistic, not real.

    I think maybe partly it's artificial because of the lack of movement (takes place in one room) and the complexity of the material (the maths, the themes...)

    By George, I think you got it! Good thinking. <G>
