Photo Flash: Ego Actus And LungTree Productions Present TIME STANDS STILL By Donald Margulies

Ego Actus and LungTree Productions present Time Stands Still by Donald Margulies. The Tony Award-nominated play is directed by Ego Actus co-founder, Joan Kane who was named Person of the Year by nytheatre.com in 2011, and was the recipient of the Best Director Award at the Untied Solo Festival in 2016.

Set in Brooklyn, the play revolves around Sarah, a photo journalist who has just returned from covering the war in Syria after being severely injured by a roadside bomb. Her reporter boyfriend James, is swamped by guilt for leaving Sarah alone in Syria where she was nearly killed. When they receive a visit from their photo editor friend Richard, who introduces them to his new and much younger girlfriend Mandy, their relationship is tested. Can the adventurous couple find peace with a more conventional life when they thrive on the adrenaline rush of war?

Producer Bruce A! Kraemer discussed what attracted them to the script, "Ego Actus and LungTree Productions were drawn to Time Stands Still because it is a play for our times. It explores the mainstream media exploiting human tragedy and does it through the lens of what happens to individual people on very personal levels."

The cast stars Maggie Alexander (Fifty Words/Gene Frankel Theater), Connie Castanzo (Gigi/Storm Theatre Company), Malcolm Stephenson (The Sisters Rosensweig/Broadway), and Timothy Weinert (Street Justice: The Bronx/Discovery TV).

The creative team includes scenic design by Mark Marcante, costume design by Cat Fisher, lighting design by Bruce A! Kraemer, sound design by Ian Wehrle, make-up design by Virna Smiraldi, house management by Angela Manfredonia, and stage management by Dana Robbins.

Performances take place at Theatre for the New City, 155 1st Avenue (Between 9th & 10th Street), New York City, 10003. Tickets are $18.00 and can be purchased at www.smarttix.com/Event/tim447 or by calling (212) 868-4444. 10% of the box office proceeds will be donated to Physicians for Human Rights.
