Theatre: Time Stands Still Media coverage of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has sometimes been as much about journalists as soldiers. In 2006, ABC's Bob Woodruff was nearly killed when shrapnel from a roadside bomb in Iraq tore through his brain. In 2010, New York Times' photographer Joao Silva stepped on a mine while embedded with troops in Afghanistan. As grace would have it, Woodruff and Silva are both still able to do journalism. But that doesn't mean the recovery process was simple, or easy. Silva lost both of his legs and had to learn to walk with prostheses; Woodruff, in an interview with USA Today two years after the explosion, was not able to remember the name of the device that changes the channels on a TV ("remote control"). What happens after the hospital is the subject of Donald Margulies' Time Stands Still. First performed on Broadway in early 2010 with a cast that featured Laura Linney, Brian d'Arcy James, Eric Bogosian, and Alicia Silverstone, Time Stands Still tells the story of Sarah Goodwin, a female war photographer who returns to a fraught marriage after suffering an injury that left her scarred and limping. Her recovery, however, is complicated by the emotional gulf between her and her partner, a war journalist who suffered a mental breakdown and fled Iraq shortly before Goodwin was injured; and the reappearance in her life of an old flame.
