Time Stands Still by Donald Margulies (Staged Reading)
Our Fifteenth Annual Staged Play Reading Series continues with a fully staged reading of one of the finest new plays to grace the American stage, Time Stands Still, by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies. After barely surviving a bomb blast in Iraq, a photojournalist returns home to recuperate and finds herself caught in a tug of war between her career and the quiet domestic life desired by her long-time lover and friends around her.
"Time Stands Still explores the relationship between two couples at a crucial juncture in their lives, when the desire to move forward clashes with the instinct to stay comfortably or even uncomfortably in place...Margulies's quietly powerful drama illustrates
just how much pain and trauma are involved in the everyday business of two people creating a life together, one that accommodates the mistakes of the past, the reality of the present and the changes that the future may bring." -
