Paper Lantern Theatre Company Presents "Time Stands Still"
A regional premiere of Time Stands Still, the Tony nominated play by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Donald Margulies comes to the Triad this month courtesy of Paper Lantern Theatre Company. "The play’s two hours fly by as if you’ve barely taken a breath”, so says Variety magazine. Time Stands Still kicks off Paper Lantern’s 6th season and its first season as the official resident theatre company for the Triad Stage UpStage Cabaret.
Time Stands Still opens September 27th at 8:00pm and runs through October 6th as part of the 17 Days Festival in Greensboro before heading to the Hanesbrands Theatre in Winston-Salem from October 10th through the 13th. The play follows a longtime couple and journalistic team as they return to New York after a long and harrowing stint in the war-torn Middle East. Photojournalist Sarah, and foreign correspondent James attempt to negotiate more ordinary life, far from the adrenaline inducing danger of a battleground. Paper Lantern actor Ben Baker is James, Paper Lantern co-founder, actor Amy da Luz is Sarah, and they are both enormous fans of Time Stands Still playwright Donald Margulies.
