Sarah, a photojournalist, and James, a foreign correspondent, are trying to find happiness in a world that seems to have gone crazy. Theirs is a partnership based on telling the toughest stories, and together, making a difference. But when their own story takes a sudden turn, the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life.

“Mr. Margulies is gifted at creating complex characters through wholly natural interaction, allowing the emotional layers, the long histories, the hidden kernels of conflict to emerge organically. Throughout, his dialogue crackles with bright wit and intelligence. Although TIME STANDS STILL is deceptively modest, consisting of a handful of conversations among just four characters, the range of feeling it explores is wide and deep.”
—NY Times.

Over the course of 30 years, the lives of Kayleen and Doug intersect at the most bizarre intervals, leading the two childhood friends to compare scars and the physical calamities that keep drawing them together.

“Irresistibly odd and exciting…This darkly humorous drama is Rajiv Joseph’s most satisfying work.” —NY Daily News. “This wondrous strange two-hander finds as much humor as horror in the play’s bizarre events.” —Variety.

David Harrell’s life has been about overcoming obstacles. From being bullied by other children to performing on stage in New York City, Harrell has been able to meet his challenges with dignity, grace, and a big dose of humor.

Harrell was born without his right hand, but went on to play varsity football and baseball at Glynn Academy. He started acting during his junior year. From there, he earned a master’s degree of fine arts from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2008 and then moved to New York City. He’s worked as an actor ever since.

“…letting us walk with him in his shoes during this hour-long show is edifying and illuminating.  He excels at sharing, at helping his audience explore and feel some of what he has been through.  I think we’re all of us better for that sharing.”  – Martin Denton, NYTheatre.com
