Artist Interviews

Time Stands Still by Donald Margulies

Opens May 13, 2022

Time Stands Still

Artist Interviews

Time Stands Still examines the lives of one couple who are journalists and make a living out of documenting the horrors of war.

When Sarah and her boyfriend, James, come back from covering the Iraq War, they are physically bruised and emotionally beaten.

While they are recovering, their best friend, Richard, brings his new, young girlfriend to visit.

Their burgeoning relationship makes James and Sarah examine their own relationship and way of life.

Is it possible for two people who are used to living in dangerous conditions to carve out a normal life? Can they stay together amidst unspoken betrayals and conflicting ideals?

Acclaimed playwright Donald Margulies’ Time Stands Still answers these questions, while leaving unanswered qualms regarding the way America deals with war and tragedy coverage.

The Motherfucker With The Hat by Stephen Adly Guirgis

Opens July 15, 2022

Jackie, a former drug dealer, has just been released from prison and is living with his high school sweetheart, Veronica.

Jackie is enrolled in the AA program and is drug free with the help of his sponsor, Ralph D.

When Jackie comes home having finally snagged a job, he and his libido are ready to celebrate. But, when Veronica jumps into the shower to get ready, Jackie notices a hat sitting in the room that isn’t his.

He accuses Veronica of having an affair and, though she vehemently denies it, the inexplicably present hat causes a huge rift between them.

Jackie’s discovery puts into motion a series of further discoveries that unravel the fabric of love and trust that weaves a community together: lovers are split up, infidelity seems contagious, and sobriety is threatened.

As his relationships to those he loved and trusted most dissolve before his eyes, Jackie has to decide whether he is truly ready to give up his vices in order to move into a brighter future.
