Sarah, a photographer who has been in many of the world crises and war zones, hobbles on crutches into her loft apartment in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn with Richard, her lover of eight years. They have just come from a long flight and are bushed. She was badly injured in a bomb blast and had a long recovery period in an American service hospital in Germany. Richard flew there when he first heard about the injury and stayed with her all during the convalescence. Their driver/translator/fixer, Tariq, had been killed in the same blast.
They have many issues between them. Richard who had been partnering with her in Iraq witnessed a horrible explosion, had a serious nervous breakdown, and had to return to the States leaving Sarah there with Tariq. He feels that she could have flown back with him during his crisis, and she feels as if he had abandoned her.
Shortly after they get in the apartment, Richard, the photo editor of her magazine and a former lover of Sarah's from decades before, comes in with his new young trophy girlfriend, Mandy, who seems to be somewhat dumb. It's Mandy, however, who brings out two important themes in the play. She says, quite vehemently that she can't understand how photographers can take pictures of people who are in pain or great stress. Why don't they put down their cameras and help. No, says Sarah, they can do much more good by providing the world with a photographic record of the suffering.Read more ›
Time Stands Still is one of those shows so perfect the way that it is that you just p r a y it will never be sold and adapted as a film.
Perfect just the way it is. With inconvenient, imperfect characters. And loose ends untied.
We need plays that have only a few cast members and this would fit the bill. It is dramatic..becomes a bit preachy at times and doesn't have many chuckles. If you are looking for a serious play...this might fit the bill. Only four characters.

Margulies is a concise writer - his plays are lean and mean and leave plenty for a director and actors to chew on to get to the soul to soul work of the theater!Published 1 month ago by Robert L. Holter
I bought this for a college English class but never really was that interested in it. Great for actors though.Published 17 months ago by Emily Hsu
This play is no different. Well written with an end I totally didn't want! I read a lot of plays and it's always nice to completely immersed in these characters and their journey.Published on May 15, 2013 by Jesse T. Kobayashi
I teach acting and there are some good scenes in here for my students and it is always nice to use a new play by a good playwright.Published on February 26, 2013 by Karen K.
This is a great little play. Some unexpected gender reversals that highlight interesting changes in our world. Don't want to spoil it...Published on January 30, 2013 by Tiffo
This play is outstanding. It's poignant and pointed, a great read. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves theatre or current events.
