After barely surviving a bomb blast while covering war in the Mideast, photojournalist Sarah Goodwin finds herself caught in a tug of war between her career and the quiet of domestic life in Brooklyn. Returning home into the care of James, her long-time partner and fellow journalist, Sarah is caught off-guard by James’ desire for family and by the simple domestic life pursued by Richard, her editor, and his much younger girlfriend, Mandy. This Broadway-hit play from Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies is a witty, intelligent look at what happens when ordinary life is refracted through the lens of war.
Marguiles explores the tension between being an artist and a human being, as his characters ask such probing questions as what does it mean to capture suffering on film, rather than stopping to intervene?
“The play’s 90 minutes fly by as if you’ve barely taken a breath. . . . Ethical dilemmas arise like exploding mines.”—Variety
“The dialogue crackles with bright wit and intelligence”—The New York Times
“Margulies’ work achieves the polish of a splendidly synchronized string quartet”—The Washington Post
