“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.​

In this modern version of Adam’s seduction by Eve, “The Shape of Things” pits gentle, awkward, overweight Adam against experienced, analytical, amoral Evelyn, a graduate student in art. “The Shape of Things” examines how we treat each other as human beings and how we deceive and wound each other in our attempt to secure love.​
