What Is the Story of Times Stands Still?
Real-life couple Sarah and James work together as war correspondents—she’s a photographer; he’s a writer. When a car bomb severely injures Sarah, she comes home to recuperate in the Brooklyn loft she and James share. It soon becomes clear that she is eager to return to where the action is, while he’s relieved to be away from the terror and bloodshed. Meanwhile, their editor, Richard, drops by with his much-younger girlfriend, Mandy, a happy-go-lucky event planner who can’t understand why journalists simply record what they see rather than actively try to stop the violence.

Critics' Reviews

""A powerful drama in a flawless production... Time Stands Still is Donald Margulies’ finest play since the Pulitzer Prize-winning Dinner With Friends. His dialogue crackles with bright wit and intelligence. Laura Linney is an actress of unusual economy and grace. Brian d'Arcy James is a remarkably versatile actor who has never been better than he is here. Alicia Silverstone brings intelligence and humor to her character, and Eric Bogosian is terrific.""

Review by Charles Isherwood from The New York Times

""Time Stands Stll soars! Laura Linney is remarkable as Sarah. Her unmannered lucidity and utter lack of vanity make Sarah convincing and sympathetic. Brian d’Arcy James gives a vital performance. Eric Bogosian is winning and Alicia Silverstone gives Mandy warmth and substance.""
