"If it weren't for people like me... the ones with the cameras... Who would know? Who would care?"

In a script The New York Times says “crackles with bright wit and intelligence,” this Broadway-hit play from Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies is a witty, intelligent look at what happens when ordinary life is refracted through the lens of war.   Sarah and James – a photographer and a journalist – share a passion for the adrenaline rush caused from reporting in the world’s deadliest war zones. As reporters, their lives are devoted to telling the toughest stories from across the globe. But how do you separate yourself from the action you witness? How do you create an impartial lens? When their own story takes a sudden turn during a bomb blast in Iraq, the wounded Sarah returns home with James to the safety of New York. Can they settle into a more “conventional” life and leave behind the drama and chaos of war?

In 2013, tKAPOW launched the ARTiculate Playreading Series with a reading of this play at the Currier Museum of Art. In 2015, tKAPOW will bring a fully-realized production to the Derry Opera House.
