Time Stands Still, a play by Donald Margulies: Sarah, a photojournalist, returns to Brooklyn from Iraq to recover from injuries suffered in a roadside bomb attack. Her long time partner James is there to help her, but has injuries of his own. Both characters struggle with physical and mental recovery from their trauma, and how their experiences have changed their relationship and each other. Richard, their longtime friend and editor is there to welcome them home and help them adjust to being back, but he brings a new wrinkle, his new girlfriend Mandy. Directed by Andy Hayworth.
