Here’s another one from Red Turnip that is sure to wow: Time Stands Still.
Ok. From that trailer it seems reeeeallllly heavy. The write ups also tell you that in fact the critically acclaimed script by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies has a serious message. According to millennials’ most trusted source Wikipedia LOL, it is about “changing relationships and social issues”. According to Jenny Jamora, one of the producers for the Red Turnip production, it is “the story of Sarah, a photojournalist who must return home with her journalist boyfriend James after sustaining injuries from war-torn Middle East. The play follows their love story as they negotiate a more ordinary life, far from the thrills of a battleground.”
BUT it is written in such a way that the path to understanding the message is filled with laughter. On Broadway, the lead was played by Laura Linney, who was nominated for a Tony for her work (while the play was also nominated for Best Play). AND check out the very energetic supporting actress: Christina Ricci!
The Philippine production is directed by Rem Zamora and will star Ana Abad Santos, Nonie Buencamino, Nor Domingo and Giannina Ocampo. (Still can’t get over the fact that Nonie Buencamino was the kontrabida in Walang Hanggan LOL).
