Donald Margulies' Tony Award-nominated play Time Stands Still explores the lives of Sarah and James, a couple who work as journalists documenting the horrors of war. When they return from covering the war in Iraq, they are physically bruised and emotionally beaten. While they are recovering, their best friend, Richard, brings his new, young girlfriend to visit. This burgeoning relationship makes James and Sarah examine their own relationship and way of life. Is it possible for two people who are used to living in the danger zone to carve out a normal life? Can they stay together amidst unspoken betrayals and conflicting ideals?
From the NY Times review:
"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."
