    • Deep Dish Theater Company takes on Tom Stoppard’s richly layered comedy, “Arcadia,” beginning Friday night in Chapel Hill’s University Mall for a four-week run. The play alternates between past and present as academic scholars investigate the events surrounding a 19th century tutor and his student. Details at deepdishtheater.org.

It’s a compassionate look at loss and anger along the path to healing. 8 p.m. Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday (through Mar. 16). $15-$45. 919-962-7529 or playmakersrep.org.
