Time Stands Still
By Donald Margulies
"When I look through that little rectangle ... Time stops. It just ... All the noise around me ... Everything cuts out. And all I see ... is the picture." ~ Sarah Goodwin, Time Stands Still
DRAMA/COMEDY This moving and often hilarious story of relationships from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of DINNER WITH FRIENDS follows longtime partners Sarah and James, a photojournalist and foreign correspondent, who share a passion for documenting the realities of war. But when Sarah is nearly killed in a bomb blast and returns home to New York to convalesce, the adventurous couple must confront the prospect of a more conventional life together. A brilliant Broadway hit, TIME STANDS STILL bears witness to the human experience in all its facets, from the exhilaration and danger of living on the front lines to the gentle intimacies of domestic life. TIME STANDS STILLS is produced by special arrangement with Theatre Communications Group, Inc., New York City, NY. This production contains language and themes that some may find objectionable.
"quietly powerful drama that...crackles with bright wit and intelligence” - The New York Times
“smart, stylish, timely and layered with an intriguing seriousness that inspires discussion after the curtain comes down” - Associated Press
“[Margulies] writes with intelligence and humour and creates dialogue that always hits the ear as real" - New York Daily News
by arrangement with PAUL ELLIOT, ADAM KENWRIGHT, & PAT MOYLAN
Stones In His Pockets
By Marie Jones
COMEDY/DRAMA In this funny and poignant two-hander, a rural Irish village is turned upside down by the arrival of an American film crew. Down-on-their-luck locals Charlie and Jake hope to hit it big when hired as extras for the big-budget movie, but soon discover that Hollywood’s romanticized Ireland stands in stark contrast to harsh reality. Winner of the 2001 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and nominated for three Tony awards, STONES IN HIS POCKETS features two actors taking on more than a dozen eccentric characters, from the film’s spoiled American starlet to the star-struck locals.
“inventive and riotously funny” - Associated Press
"A delight from beginning to end" - The Express
Waiting for a Chinook
A New Play About Old Newspapers
By Gregory Hinton
COMEDY/DRAMA In the wake of the drastic declines suffered by metro daily newspapers in 2008, Vince, a disillusioned city reporter, returns to his boyhood western town to search for place and meaning in the writings of his late father, a Wyoming country editor. ”Sometimes I can hear these old newspapers talking!” he is told by Ramona, a dedicated and spirited county archivist –- who quickly becomes both sparring partner and guide. Affecting, earnest and compassionate, Waiting for a Chinook celebrates community journalism and country editors everywhere, and the sacrifices made to bring us the stories of ourselves.
