Time Stands Still by Donald Margulies

Open Auditions: 5-7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 10 | Bodker Black Box Theatre
Callbacks: 5 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 11
Full rehearsals will begin Monday, Aug. 17

Please prepare a 1-2 minute contemporary monologue. Cold readings will be provided if you do not have a prepared monologue.

“Time Stands Still” examines the lives of one couple who are journalists and make a living out of documenting the horrors of war. Theirs is a partnership based on telling the toughest stories and, together, making a difference. Is it possible for two people who are used to living in dangerous conditions to carve out a normal life? Can they stay together amidst unspoken betrayals and conflicting ideals? Playwright Donald Margulies answers these questions while leaving unanswered questions regarding the way America deals with war, tragedy, and media coverage.​
