Photo Flash: Deep Dish Theater's ARCADIA, Now Playing Through 3/22
A gaggle of academics tries to make sense of the past and a precocious girl is on the verge of altering the future in Tom Stoppard's sparkling comedy, Arcadia, presented by the Deep Dish Theater Company through March 22. Directed by Artistic Director Paul Frellick, the play continues the company's thirteenth season at University Mall.
The play is set in the same English country manor and moves back and forth between two different eras. It documents a tangle of events involving a tutor (Ryan Brock), his gifted student (Nicole Gabriel) and an inept and incensed would-be poet (David Godshall) in the early 19th Century, as well as the contemporary investigation of those events by two sparring English scholars (Dorothy Recasner Brown and Eric Carl) and a prickly mathematician (Adam Sampieri). The cast also includes Erika Edwards, Thom Gradisher, Leanne Heintz, Doug Lally, Bill Mercer and Will Pierson.
Performances begin Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., and Sunday (matinee) at 2 p.m. Deep Dish is located in Chapel Hill's University Mall, on Estes Drive and US 15-501. Tickets are $24 for adults and $21 for seniors, with a $2 discount for Wednesday and Thursday shows. Student tickets are $16 for all shows. Wednesday, March 5 is "Cheap Dish Night" - all tickets are $12 (no reservations accepted). Call 919-968-1515 for ticket reservations and for more information visit www.deepdishtheater.org.
