Greenwich Library to host free performance of ‘Time Stands Still’ on Sunday

Described as “smart, stylish and timely,” you want to miss a free performance of Time Stands Still  on Sept. 15 at 2 p.m. in the Greenwich Library Cole Auditorium, presented by M&M Productions Acting Company, Inc.

This funny, thoughtful drama from the brilliant mind of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Donald Margulies, focuses on conflicts ranging from professional to family life to the extremes of global strife.

According to the Associated Press, “Donald Margulies’ play is layered with an intriguing seriousness that inspires discussion long after the curtain comes down.”

Times Stands Still examines the challenges that face two wartime correspondents: Sarah, a photojournalist — recently injured — and her overprotective partner, James, a floundering, freelance writer. He wants to settle down and resume some sense of normalcy while Sarah finds herself torn between the stagnancy of healing, a lingering sense of guilt and the persistent, emotional needs of James. Walking into the middle of this battle are Sarah’s photo editor and former lover, Richard, and his new girlfriend, Mandy, 30 years his junior.

Mandy, whose shallow, provincial nature stands in stark contrast to Sarah’s war-scarred street savvy, finds herself quickly outmatched. Still, she brings a charming, good-heartedness that turns out to be a rarity in Sarah and James’s Brooklyn apartment.

Director Larry Schneider, otherwise known as Log On With Larry in his regular column for the Greenwich Post, is excited to present this wonderfully charming, comic, and thought-provoking play to libraries throughout the region. Featured in the play are Robin Gorn, Peter Lillo and Theodora Kimmel, making her M&M debut. The play contains adult themes and language.

This program is made possible through the support of the Greenwich Library Board of Trustees and contributions by donors. For more information, contact Alice Bonvenuto at 203-622-7919 or visit Greenwichlibrary.org.
