Time Stands Still
October 28 - November 19, 2022 / Friday & Saturday at 8:00pm
After barely surviving a bomb blast in Iraq, photojournalist Sarah Goodwin finds herself caught in a tug of war between her career and the quiet of domestic life. Returning home into the care of her long-time lover, James, Sarah’s caught off-guard by James’ desire for family and by the simple domestic life pursued by Richard, her editor, and his much younger girlfriend, Mandy. In a script The New York Times says “crackles with bright wit and intelligence,” this Broadway-hit play from Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies is a witty, intelligent look at what happens when ordinary life is refracted through the lens of war.
WITH: Candace West, Asia Meana, Sundiata Rush, and Alex Van.
“Mr. Margulies is gifted at creating complex characters through wholly natural interaction, allowing the emotional layers, the long histories, the hidden kernels of conflict to emerge organically. Throughout, his dialogue crackles with bright wit and intelligence. Although TIME STANDS STILL is deceptively modest, consisting of a handful of conversations among just four characters, the range of feeling it explores is wide and deep.” —NY Times
