After barely surviving a bomb blast while covering war in the Mideast, photojournalist Sarah Goodwin finds herself caught in a tug of war between her career and the quiet of domestic life in Brooklyn. Returning home into the care of James, her long-time partner and fellow journalist, Sarah is caught off-guard by James’ desire for family and by the simple domestic life pursued by Richard, her editor, and his much younger girlfriend, Mandy. This Broadway-hit play from Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies, directed by Joanne Greenberg, is a witty, intelligent look at what happens when ordinary life is refracted through the lens of war.
