Time Stands Still

January 23 – February 11, 2018 by Donald Margulies

Sarah and James work together as war correspondents—she’s a photographer; he’s a writer. When a car bomb injures Sarah, she comes home to recuperate in the loft they share. It’s soon clear that she is eager to return to the action, while he’s relieved to be away from the terror and bloodshed. Faced with the prospect of leading a normal life, can Sarah confront her addiction to chaos and war? From Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies, this Broadway hit play is a witty, intelligent look at ordinary life through the lens of war.

“Crackles with wit and intelligence” – The New York Times Directed by Susan D. Atkinson

Running time: 120 minutes plus a 15 minute intermission
