The GableStage presents the Southeastern Premiere of the play Time Stands Still from May 5th – June 3rd at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables. Written by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Donald Margulies, the 2010 Broadway production was nominated for two Tony Awards for Best Play and Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play for Laura Linney.
The compelling story revolves around a photojournalist named Sarah, and a foreign correspondent named James, who have been together for nine years; and share a passion for documenting the realities of war. Sarah returns home to Brooklyn from covering the Iraq war, after being injured in a roadside bomb. James is swamped by guilt over leaving Sarah alone in Iraq. As they readjust to their lives back in the states, they find their future together threatened by the prospect of a more conventional life. The subject matter of Time Stands Still seems especially poignant as Americans face the return of increasing numbers of men and women returning from the Middle East, each with their own journey to assessing and reclaiming their lives here in the US.
