Time Stands Still

Coming soon to San Juan Community Theatre, Time Stands Still is a Tony and Pulitzer nominated play, written by Donald Margulies and directed by Brandon Cadwell.

The play focuses on Sarah and James, who are navigating recovery of their physical and mental health after spending time documenting the atrocities of war. Their partnership is based on telling tough stories and making a difference.

In the words of our director, Brandon Cadwell, when asked what drew him to the play, “As I turned the pages, I became enthralled by them-it felt so very real. Every single word felt like something I hear in conversation on a daily basis. I felt that I had been dropped into the living room of these characters and watched their lives unfold. It is a show that doesn’t have a nemesis, but the challenges that each of them is looking to conquer within themselves provides the tension.”

The setting of the play, an apartment, and the physical location of the play, our Gubelman Theatre, provide an unparalleled sense of intimacy. The audience will immediately be brought into the deeper aspects of Sarah and James’ experience, as the former photojournalist and foreign correspondent try to find happiness while preparing for the prospect of a more conventional new life. All the while, playwright Donald Margulies forces us to question what it means to capture suffering on film, rather than stopping to intervene.

Tickets for Time Stands Still are on sale now. Given the limited seating in the Gubelman Theatre, it is highly recommended that you purchase tickets in advance.
