Time Stands Still

By Donald Marguiles, directed by Wendy Katz Hiller

May 11 – June 2, 2018

TIME STANDS STILL focuses on Sarah and James, a photojournalist and a foreign correspondent trying to find happiness in a world that seems to have gone crazy. Theirs is a partnership based on telling the toughest stories, and together, making a difference. But when their own story takes a sudden turn, how will they move on to the next chapter?

“Mr. Margulies is gifted at creating complex characters through wholly natural interaction, allowing the emotional layers, the long histories, the hidden kernels of conflict to emerge organically. Throughout, his dialogue crackles with bright wit and intelligence.  —NY Times. “Can you be a dispassionate, uninvolved observer of horrific events, recording them for posterity and still keep a sense of right and wrong, not to mention your sanity? It’s one of several questions getting a workout in TIME STANDS STILL…Insightful writing, the work is smart, stylish, timely and layered with an intriguing seriousness that inspires discussion after the curtain comes down—a rarity these days.” —Associated Press.

Civil War Remembrance @ The Henry Ford
May 26 @ 9:30 am – May 28 @ 9:00 pm

What is freedom? What is liberty? These questions continue to define us. Bone-deep convictions on all sides split our young country in the mid-1800s. Civil War America is colored by a sense of fierce community, as well as the scorched-earth division of North and South. Join the beset citizenry, as they rise above wartime challenges to clothe, feed and entertain one another. Spend the day steeped in the atmosphere that drew 3 million to the battlefield and an estimated 750,000 to their graves. What did it feel like to fight on your own soil? Immersed amongst Union and Confederate living history soldiers, historians, presentations, 1860s fashions and street clothing, and military demonstrations, you might begin to comprehend the circumstances that ended slavery and killed today’s equivalent of 7.5 million people.

A national moment of silence at 3 p.m. Monday will be signaled by the Armington & Sims shop whistle.

History deepens from black and white to blues and grays, as you travel from a battlefield to a Stephen Foster sing-along to a peek into the thriving ready-to-wear fashion industry of the era. Innovations in firearms, dress and military strategy, alongside the heroism and tragedy, make up the American spirit of the era. Join us in honoring and exploring this remarkable time. .

Bullet Journaling @ Bacon Memorial District Library
May 30 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Bullet journaling is a organizational strategy that can lead to higher performance, more productivity and a satisfying feeling of accomplishment at the end of the day. Learn new and simple planning techniques or tweak your existing strategies. We will share monthly what worked and what didn’t and plan our coming months together. We also will dive into hand lettering and layouts for those of you with a creative streak. Please bring a notebook and something to write with. A ruler and colored markers or highlighters would be nice as well but not necessary. Here’s to a productive new year!
