time well spent

'Spent last night at the theater instead of at the office.  A wise choice.

The new play at the Guthrie is Time Stands Still, written by Donald Margulies.  It's a very up-to-date story about war-zone news reporters, particularly news photographers.  Sarah is the person behind the camera, returning home after being seriously injured by a roadside bomb in Iraq, her lover/husband James a news writer.  Both characters accept yet also question their roles as chroniclers of horror.  The casting of Sarah and James and of their friends Richard and Mandy is perfect, and the set is amazing.  The Guthrie Theater has another impressive production.
