In this “quietly powerful” play that “crackles with bright wit and intelligence”, Pulitzer-winner Donald Margulies gives us the poignant story of Sarah and James. As a photojournalist and foreign correspondent their relationship centers on telling the toughest stories from around the world. After a roadside bombing abroad nearly takes Sarah’s life, James decides that they’ve risked enough and asks her to stay in New York, where he hopes to nurture her and their declining relationship back to health. Caught between James’s loving appeals and her ambition to continue reporting, Sarah faces the life-altering decision between settling down or risking everything for her career.
