About the Play

Sarah and her partner, James, return home shortly after Sarah suffered severe injuries while working as a photojournalist in Iraq.  A visit from their friend Richard and his new (and surprisingly young) girlfriend, Mandy, lays bare the fault lines in Sarah and James’ relationship.  Their struggle to return to a “normal life” after witnessing so much death and carnage is complicated by past relationships and conflicting goals for their future.  Margulies deftly explores timely and relevant topics through four fully-realized characters in a highly compelling evening of theatre.

 

Roles

Sarah Goodwin – a photojournalist

James Dodd – a freelance journalist and Sarah’s partner

Richard Ehrlich – a photo editor and their friend

Mandy Bloom – an event planner and Richard’s girlfriend
