March 24-April 8
War photojournalist Sarah and foreign correspondent James share a partnership based on telling the toughest stories, and together, making a difference. But when their own story takes an unexpected turn, the adventurous couple grapples with the prospect of a more conventional life. A visit from their long-time friend Richard and his new girlfriend Mandy throws things in stark relief for the couple. The New York Times raved, “(the) dialogue crackles with bright wit and intelligence…the range of feeling it explores is wide and deep.” Pulitzer-winning playwright Donald Margulies’ “insightful writing (is) layered with an intriguing seriousness that inspires discussion after the curtain comes down,” (Associated Press).
Directed by J. Mark Baumhardt and featuring Sara Jones, Casey Preston, Chris Cardoni, and Sabrina Cylie, “Time Stands Still” will open on Friday March 24 and run through April 8.
