Actors for TIME STANDS STILL by Donald Marguiles.

Breakdown

Sarah Goodwin: 30’s-40’s. A Photojournalist. Cagey and delightfully witty with dry sense of humor. Views sentimentality as weakness but secretly feels things very deeply. Uses her lens to convey her emotion. It is how she feels things. Always roots for the underdog but hates being infirmed because she currently is the underdog. Reeling from a heart ache and unable to put things in to the proper context in her current context of a comfortable American life. She flirts with the idea of living a normal life and burying the past in order not to have to deal with the emotions of it. Think Beatrice from Much Ado meets Darlene from Roseanne if Darlene grew up to be a photojournalist in war zones.

James Dodd: 30’s-40’s. A writer. Flirted with the same addiction to danger as Sarah but a near death experience has changed him. He wants normalcy. He is happy to be the wind beneath Sarah’s wings and let her be the star. He knows how phenomenally talented she is and loves her for it. He gets Sarah. He rarely takes her personally and instead finds great delight in how he can anticipate her moods and needs. During the play however, he learns to think of his big picture, and put his needs for the future first. A classic –nice guy.

Richard Ehrlich: 40-50’s. A photo editor. Smart, funny, adept at handling personalities. Constantly in rooms full of vast wealth (which he himself has some of – not as much as others- but enough). He moves seamlessly between artist and funder. All his middle aged male friends covet his life. In the play he functions as the ultimate peace keeper. He’s part of their family. They all get along because they all have the same amount of hunger- his is just directed in more traditional, less dangerous directions. A connoisseur of excellence, he has a great eye and exceptional taste- in art and people.

Mandy Bloom - 20--30's. Mandy is beautiful and surprising. She's not afraid of much in life, including admitting what she doesn't know. She's a bit of a fish out of water with these intelligencia but she has her own value system and doesn't get thrown off. She feels everything but she chooses not to live in dark emotions for that long. She chooses to have a joyful life and is infectious to those around her and effects a deep change in them. Should not be played as vapid- should be played as caring, with a strong sense of justice.
