THE STORY:  From Pulitzer- Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies comes a moving and often hilarious story of relationships, mid-life crisis and the ties of friendship.  James and Sarah, a journalist and photographer, cope with changes in life and their relationship when Sarah’s injuries abroad force them to return home to New York.  Praised by the New York Times as a powerful drama that “crackles with bright wit and intelligence,” this surprisingly funny play prompts poignant questions about responsibility – to ourselves, to our loved ones and to the world.”
