Time Stands Still

Saturday, November 16, 2013

From the brilliant, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Donald Margulies, Times Stands Still examines the challenges that face two wartime correspondents: Sarah, a recently injured photojournalist and her overprotective partner, James, a floundering, freelance writer. James wants to settle down and resume some sense of normalcy while Sarah is torn between the stagnancy of healing, a lingering sense of guilt, and James' persistent, emotional needs. Walking into the middle of this battle are Sarah’s photo editor and former lover, Richard, and his young, new girlfriend, Mandy, whose shallow, provincial nature stands in stark contrast to Sarah’s war-scarred street savvy.

This charming, comic, and thought-provoking play is directed by Larry Schneider.

“A powerful drama...Time Stands Still is Donald Margulies’s finest play since the Pulitzer Prizewinning Dinner With Friends.”
                                                                                          —The New York Times

“Smart, stylish, and timely. ...Donald Margulies’s play is layered with an intriguing seriousness that inspires discussion long after the curtain comes down.”
