Time Stands Still: Tony-nominated play set to debut at Darlinghurst Theatre

time stands stillPulitzer Prize winning playwright Donald Margulies’ Tony Award nominated play, Time Stands Still, is set to make its Australian premiere at Sydney’s Darlinghurst Theatre from Friday 30 March.

Directed by Kim Hardwick (The Hatpin), Time Stands Still follows the homecoming of a war photojournalist, Sarah Goodwin, after being injured in a car bombing. The play explores the addictiveness of documenting the atrocity of war, and when recently-home Sarah and her journalist partner are visited by a photo editor friend and his much younger girlfriend, the reality of a life at war and the reality of conventional life and domesiticity are both brought into focus.

Margulies’ play examines how, after living a dangerous life of extremes, just how much is required of two people building a life together away from the distractions of war.

With a strong cast featuring Rebecca Rocheford Davies (Dinner With Friends), Richard Sydenham (Murderers), Noel Hodda (The God Committee) and Harriet Dyer (Pygmalion), this play, billed by the New York Times as a “quietly powerful drama” that “crackles with bright with and intelligence,” is not a show to be missed.

TIME STANDS STILL will play at Darlinghurst Theatre, 19 Greenknowe Ave Potts Point
DATES: Previews: 30 March – 22 April
BOOKINGS: Darlinghurst Theatre on 8356 9987 or www.darlinghursttheatre.com
