“Crackles with bright wit and intelligence.” – The New York Times

“Donald Margulies’ TIME STANDS STILL compellingly demonstrates what a master playwright can do with great economy and efficiency…A rare play that encompasses universal issues and personal problems with equal compassionate insight. A splendid theatrical experience.”— —Bloomberg News

There are exact times when the pursuit of what is important clashes with the consequences of one’s choices. Sarah Goodwin, a photo journalist recovering from the blast of a road side bomb overseas, must decide between her life’s work of revealing unsettling truths about the world, and domestic comfort. Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, Donald Margulies, here weaves a gripping story of the cost of staying true to one’s path.
