The drama about two international journalists who return home from dangerous assignments played an extended sold-out run at Manhattan Theatre Club's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre earlier this year. The production went on hiatus until the fall to accommodate Linney's commitment to her new Showtime series "The Big C," which is now in production and will premiere Aug. 16.
In the play, "Sarah and James, a photographer and a journalist (Laura Linney and Brian d'Arcy James), have been together for years and share a passion for documenting the realities of war. But when circumstances compel them to return home to New York and their circle of friends (Eric Bogosian and Christina Ricci) the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life."
Time Stands Still will be produced by Manhattan Theatre Club Productions; Inc. (Lynne Meadow, artistic director; Barry Grove executive producer); Nelle Nugent; Bud Martin; Ted Snowdon; and Wendy Federman.
The creative team includes John Lee Beatty (scenic design), Rita Ryack (costume design), Peter Kaczorowski (lighting design), Darron L West (sound design), Peter Golub (original music), and Thomas Schall (fight direction).
