“Wounds of War


(TheatreWorks, Aug/Sept, 2012)


hen the lights come up for "Time Stands Still," by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies, the first person the audience sees is Sarah, a photojournalist who had been injured in some war zone by a roadside bomb.

    She limps in with some help from her boyfriend, James.

    She's a mess. Scars everywhere, her leg in a brace.

    But as the play goes on, the audience sees that while she has been physically injured, James, also a journalist, has been injured in other ways.

    The play opens in previews on Wednesday at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, produced by TheatreWorks.

    It is the wardrobe department at TheatreWorks that has the task of making the usually very healthy actress Rebecca Dines and making her look all torn up.

    The Daily News looked in on a test session to see how hand-made temporary scars might work out.
