Time Stands Still
Time Stands Still
by Donald Margulies
From The Dramatists Play Service, the riveting, Tony-nominated drama by Donald Margulies TIME STANDS STILL focuses on Sarah and James, a photojournalist and a foreign correspondent trying to find happiness in a world that seems to have gone crazy. Theirs is a partnership based on telling the toughest stories, and together, making a difference. But when their own story takes a sudden turn, the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life.
"A solid play taut and well-constructed, with hardly a single detail extraneous."
- Time Out NY
"Mr. Margulies is gifted at creating complex characters through wholly natural interaction.....Throughout, his dialogue crackles with bright wit and intelligence...the range of feeling it explores is wide and deep."
- NY Times
"Can you be a dispassionate, uninvolved observer of horrific events, recording them for posterity and still keep a sense of right and wrong, not to mention your sanity? Insightful writing, the work is smart, stylish, timely and layered with an intriguing seriousness that inspires discussion after the curtain comes down a rarity these days."
- Associated Press
"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. What we get is the assiduously impartial, clarifying confrontation of the existential dilemmas that confront all of us."
- Bloomberg News
Staci Robbins ("Opus"; "Lobby Hero") directs Time Stands Still.

NEW PLAY FEST
CALLING ALL WRITERS!
The Adobe Rose Theatre
Needs YOU for our first annual
NEW PLAY FEST
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: July 1st
The Adobe Rose Theatre announces our first annual New Play Fest entitled “The Morning After.” We will produce seven short plays where we hope the artists will tell us about the lives of people we do not know, but should, in the aftermath of an election - any election. At any historical or current time, any place, any country. So, write something.
Tell us how you feel – through farce, comedy, tragedy, and everything in between. Challenge us with unexpected events, places, characters, and points of view that illuminate this defining and divisive moment in American history.
Plays should still be limited to 4 characters or fewer, 10 minutes or less, and take place in one setting, with as few set and furniture requirements as possible, the morning after whichever election you find most compelling.
Here are a few possibilities (but any others are great!):
- High School Students in a cafe the morning after a school council election.
- The morning after the Truman/Dewey election in 1948, when the infamous, and incorrect, headline "Dewey Defeats Truman" was published in the Chicago
- Or, yes, the morning after Trump's victory.
