Photojournalist Sarah has just returned to her Brooklyn home after being injured in a roadside bomb while on assignment covering the Iraq War. Her boyfriend James, who is a foreign correspondent, joins her at home. James is a man wracked with guilt after having left Sarah alone in Iraq to cover other news abroad. And now, as their mutual friend Richard, a photo editor who is also Sarah’s ex-boyfriend, and his very young girlfriend pay them a visit, Sarah and James’s romance faces a clouded and uncertain future. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies’s moving and heartfelt Time Stands Still, which opens Saturday at GableStage at the Biltmore (1200 Anastasia Ave., Coral Gables), peels back the many complex layers of relationships, war, and domesticity while exploring the range of emotions that comes with daily life challenges. The two-time Tony-nominated play was hailed by Time magazine as “authentic and brutally uncompromising” and is widely regarded as one of the best new plays to come out of Broadway in some time.
