Donald Margulies's Play, Time Stands Still, to be Performed on September 15
M&M Productions Acting Company, Inc. will present a free performance of Time Stands Still on Sunday, September 15 at 2:00 p.m. in the Cole Auditorium. This funny, thoughtful drama from the brilliant mind of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Donald Margulies, focuses on conflicts ranging from professional to family life to the extremes of global strife.
Featured in the play are Robin Gorn, Peter Lillo, and Theodora Kimmel making her M&M debut.
Associated Press says, "Smart, stylish, and timely. ...Donald Margulies's play is layered with an intriguing seriousness that inspires discussion long after the curtain comes down."
Times Stands Still examines the challenges that face two wartime correspondents: Sarah, a photojournalist--recently injured--and her overprotective partner, James, a floundering, freelance writer. He wants to settle down and resume some sense of normalcy while Sarah finds herself torn between the stagnancy of healing, a lingering sense of guilt, and the persistent, emotional needs of James.
Walking into the middle of this battle are Sarah's photo editor and former lover, Richard, and his new girlfriend, Mandy, 30 years his junior. Mandy, whose shallow, provincial nature stands in stark contrast to Sarah's war-scarred street savvy, finds herself quickly outmatched. Still, she brings a charming, good-heartedness that turns out to be a rarity in Sarah and James's Brooklyn apartment.
Director Larry Schneider is excited to present this wonderfully charming, comic, and thought-provoking play to libraries throughout the region. The play contains adult themes and language and is not suitable for young audiences.
