Editor's note: After this article was posted, the theater company announced a casting change. Angel Allen will now play the role of Sarah.
WHAT: Cornerstone Theatre Company will present the Orlando premiere of "Time Stands Still," a 2009 play by Donald Margulies. It opens Thursday, Aug. 29.
In "Time Stands Still," photojournalist Sarah has returned home from covering the Iraq war after being injured. Her boyfriend James, a writer, is filled with guilt for having left her there. The story takes place during an evening spent hosting their friend Richard and his new girlfriend. Sarah and James have to consider where their priorities lie: Their work, their spirit of adventure or their commitment to each other.
Actors Francie Moon and Owen Robertson, who have previously performed together for Cornerstone, return as Sarah and James.
Incidentally, Margulies was just represented on the Orlando stage: He also wrote "Collected Stories," which enjoyed a successful run at Mad Cow Theatre this summer. And later this season you can see his "Shipwrecked!" in a Theatre UCF production.
In 2000, Margulies won a Pulitzer Prize for drama for his play "Dinner With Friends."
WHEN: 7 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays, through Sept. 15.
WHERE: Lowndes Shakespeare Center, 812 E. Rollins St., Orlando
TICKETS: $20; students younger than 25, $15
