    By a happy coincidence – or perhaps by an even happier design! – the Oxford Student Company is performing Tom Stoppard’s ‘Arcadia’ at the Oxford Playhouse from 16th-20th October. The central character, a young mathematical prodigy named Thomasina Coverly, is based on Ada Lovelace.
    To book tickets, go to http://www.oxfordplayhouse.com/theatre/3038/Arcadia/Wednesday-16-October/Main-Stage
    For more information about the play (warning: both links contains plot spoilers), see http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/books/2013/08/tom-stoppards-arcadia-at-twenty.html or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arcadia_%28play%29.

    Hi, I can’t seem to register as I don’t have a Oxford Uni student or staff number? Thanks.
