Time Stands Still
Photojournalists capture historic, gutwrenching moments of destruction and devastation in war zones — images which are often responsible for shaping the way society comes to view what has happened in places many will never visit. These artists, weary from constant travel and hardened by what they have witnessed, are often in physical danger. Some succumb to emotional burnout. In a play by Donald Margulies, Sarah and James, a longtime couple, have both suffered the slings and arrows of their profession in Afghanistan. Now, back in New York, they must re-learn how to communicate and connect in relative safety. Enter Sarah’s old mentor, Richard, and his much younger girlfriend, and the stage is set for a human drama about love, loyalty, trauma, and drive.
