If you're a theatre goer who enjoys powerful, intelligent, thought-provoking theatre with great acting, Time Stands Still, is for you. This recent Broadway hit enjoys its Maine premiere March 15 - 24, at The Public Theatre, Lewiston/Auburn's Professional Theatre.
Time Stands Still explores the romantic and professional relationship of a photojournalist and a war correspondent hoping make a difference in the world by traveling to the hotspots of global conflict.
When an accident in the Middle East forces them to return to their Brooklyn apartment, this adventuresome couple must face their toughest challenge yet – re-entry into a traditional domestic life. But what's the more dangerous place - a war zone or a committed relationship? Is focusing on the happiness in their lives an act of courage, or a naïve denial of the suffering around them?
