Time Stands Still examines the lives of one couple who are journalists and make a living out of documenting the horrors of war. When Sarah and her boyfriend, James, come back from covering the Iraq War, they are physically bruised and emotionally beaten. While they are recovering, their best friend, Richard, brings his new, young girlfriend to visit. Their 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 dangerous conditions to carve out a normal life? Can they stay together amidst unspoken betrayals and conflicting ideals? Acclaimed playwright Donald Margulies’ Time Stands Still answers these questions, while leaving unanswered qualms regarding the way America deals with war and tragedy coverage.
