Some description

This searing drama follows Sarah Goodwin, a globe-trotting photojournalist, who returns home from the battlefields of Iraq after she’s badly injured while covering a story. When her reporter-boyfriend James makes a pitch for domesticity, Sarah must choose between the thrilling but dangerous life she craves and the physically safe but emotionally perilous life she doesn’t quite understand.

This gritty and compelling story from Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies questions whether certain desires and images can ever really be erased.

Studio’s Subscription Season is the core of our programming, offering an uncommonly rich repertoire of provocative contemporary writing from around the world and inventive stagings of contemporary classics. 


Performed with the polish of a splendidly synchronized string quartet.

The Washington Post

[Time Stands Still] will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the finest plays of the year.

Absorbing…impressively rendered.
