What’s more dangerous: a war zone, or a committed relationship? From Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies comes Cape May Stage’s fall production, Time Stands Still, a moving and often hilarious story of relationships, mid-life crises, and the ties of friendship. Directed by Artistic Director Roy Steinberg, this Tony-nominated play previews on Wednesday, September 12 and officially opens Thursday, September 13, running Wednesdays through Saturdays 8 p.m. with matinees on Sundays at 3 p.m. through October 13 at Cape May Stage’s Robert Shackleton Playhouse.
From New York to Los Angeles, critics and audiences have hailed Time Stands Still as “compelling, engrossing, and as timely as today’s headlines.” This hit Broadway play is a witty, intelligent look at how a change in perspective can alter an entire picture.
For photojournalist Sarah Goodwin, happiness has been rushing from hotspot to hotspot, capturing images of global conflict. But after an accident, she’s forced to return home and settle into a more “normal” domestic life with her journalist boyfriend, James. Is shifting one’s focus off the problems of the world and onto the good in our lives, an act of bravery or cowardice? Praised by The New York Times as a powerful drama that “crackles with bright wit and intelligence,” this surprisingly funny play prompts poignant questions about responsibility – to ourselves, to our loved ones, and to the world.
“Time Stands Still” will run from Thursday, September 13 to Saturday, October 13, Wednesdays through Saturdays 8 p.m. with matinees on Sundays at 3 p.m. at the Robert Shackleton Playhouse located at 405 Lafayette Street.
