On Friday, July 10, TheatreWorks New Milford will premiere the gripping contemporary drama TIME STANDS STILL by Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies. The curtain rises at 8:00 p.m. on a four-week run.

The story focuses on Sarah, a photojournalist, and James, a foreign correspondent and Sarah's long-term boyfriend. Sarah has just returned to their apartment in Brooklyn after being injured covering a war zone. James, meanwhile, is riddled with guilt for having left Sarah alone. 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 uncertain prospect of a more conventional life. Smart, stylish, and timely, TIME STANDS STILL will inspire much discussion well after the curtain comes down.

"[Playwright] Donald Margulies refers to TIME STANDS STILL as a love story. But I think it's also about responsibility..." said director Sonnie Osborne of New Milford. "...responsibility to each other, to the world at large, and to each of their own selves. The play touches on universal themes that give audiences something to think about, and it has wide audience appeal. The script is beautifully written. It's intelligent, engaging, moving, and unexpectedly funny."

"The show's script spans a lot of emotional territory. From world-wide conflicts down to personal and domestic issues," said producer Richard Pettibone of New Milford, who also co-designed the set and lights. "What's really enlightening and enjoyable about these four characters is that you'll still find them very relatable, despite the fact that they lead very different lives than most of us...which is really part of the point. I'm confident that this production will inspire a lot of great conversations among those who come see it."

The production features some of the region's finest actors: Will Jeffries (Southbury), Alicia Dempster and Aaron Kaplan (both Danbury), and Erin Shaughnessy (New Milford).
