Time Stands Still

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS - Time Stands Still, 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.
