Kim Bretton directs the Nashville premiere of Donald Margulies' Time Stands Still, presented by Actors Bridge Ensemble at Belmont University's Black Box Theatre, tonight May 11 through May 20.
Bretton's cast includes Actors Bridge cofounders Vali Forrister and Bill Feehely, together onstage again for the first time in several years. They are joined in the four-character piece by Jillian Gottlieb and Bryan Schlanger.
Set in Brooklyn, Time Stands Still centers around Sarah (played by Forrister), a photo journalist who has returned from covering the war in Iraq after being injured in a roadside bomb, and her reporter boyfriend James who is swamped by guilt after leaving Sarah alone in Iraq. They receive a visit from Richard, a photo editor, who introduces them to his new girlfriend Mandy, who is much younger than he. The play focuses on their relationships and Sarah and James' prospects for a more conventional life.
Performances are Friday through Sunday, May 11-13, and Thursday through Sunday, May 17-20. Thursday through Saturday performances have a 7:30 p.m. curtain, with Sunday afternoon shows at 4 p.m.
Tickets are $18 (general admission) and $15 (seniors and students). To purchase tickets in advance, got tohttp://actorsbridge.eventbrite.com/.
