Hampton Theatre Company is welcoming in the New Year with the second play of their 30th anniversary season, "Time Stands Still." The Tony nominated drama will make its East End debut on Thursday, January 8th at the Quogue Community Hall. The production was written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies, and follows the impact of an ambitious photojournalist covering the Iraq war.

After nearly facing death in a bomb blast in Iraq, Sarah Goodwin is caught between her thrilling career and domestic life with her partner, freelance journalist James Dodd. In moving forward, Goodwin is also tremendously affected by the marriage of her editor, Richard Erlich, to his younger girlfriend, Mandy.

Charles Isherwood citied the script "crackles with bright wit and intelligence" in his review of the 2010 "Time Stands Still" Broadway production for The New York Times. Isherwood concluded "the range of feeling it explores is wide and deep."

"Time Stands Still" will run from Thursday, January 8th through Sunday, January 25th, with shows at 7 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, 8 p.m. on Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. on Sundays.
