Time Stands Still
by Austin Playhouse

Sep. 19 - Oct. 19, 2014

A riveting drama that takes on our complicated relationship to war – and the war of relationships. Sarah and James, a photographer and a journalist, share a passion for the adrenaline rush that comes from reporting stories in the world's deadliest war zones. When the realities of combat become too much for James, a rift begins to form between them. After Sarah is wounded in a bomb blast in Iraq, she is forced to return home to James and the safety, and comparative boredom, of New York. Her struggle to adapt to life in New York is contrasted with the life of her mentor, Richard, who is happily embarking on a more conventional path with a much younger woman.

Pressed to consider settling down in New York, Sarah must face her addiction to a life filled unpredictability and come to terms with the impossibility of remaining just a spectator on the homefront to the tragedies of war. Time Stands Still is a witty, intelligent, and topical examination of our complicated relationship to war and its effects on the people who choose to be part of the chaos.
