"Time Stands Still," the Donald Margulies play that on Tuesday will open UND's theater season, tackles a question that has brought many careers and relationships to a crossroads: Is it best to follow a career path or to follow your heart?
Set against America's current wars, the play deals with the struggles of photojournalist Sarah Goodwin (theater major Emily Hogenson, St. Cloud, Minn.) and reporter James Dodd (theater major Nick McConnell, Grand Forks) as they come to grips with traumatic events they've suffered while covering the wars.
The couple's experiences cause them to reevaluate both the trajectory of their careers and, more importantly, the future of their relationship, a news release said. Their close friend Richard Ehrlich (theatre graduate student Jordon Wolfe, East Grand Forks) introduces them to Mandy (musical theater major Daniella Lima, Grand Forks), a charming but much younger woman whose idea of excitement is planning parties. The four characters in Margulies' insightful play argue, fight, laugh and challenge each other's core beliefs.
The play will run nightly at 7:30 p.m. through Oct. 15 at the Burtness Lab Theatre on campus. General admission tickets will be $10 for adults and $5 for students. Box office: (701) 777=2587.
