SONOROUS ROAD PRODUCTIONS, RALEIGH

FRIDAY, JAN. 1–SUNDAY, JAN. 17

"[It's] not as hard as you might think. War was my parents' house again, only on a different scale." Sarah, a photojournalist who has just returned from Iraq, is trying to explain her work to Mandy, the new (and much younger) girlfriend of her editor, Richard. Sarah doesn't get their relationship. She's already made that clear in a calculated, catty remark or two to Mandy's face—oh, nothing too vicious; that would be déclassé—as Sarah's partner, war journalist Jamie, smirks in approval. But as what The New York Times calls Donald Margulies' best drama since Dinner With Friends unfolds, Sarah and Jamie have to re-examine their own relationship. Iraq changed them both; Sarah nearly died and Jamie's still shaken from his own experiences. Do they fit together anymore? What do they really have in common besides trauma? Andy Hayworth directs Olivia Griego, Katie Barrett, Brook North and John Honeycutt in this South Stream production at Sonorous Road. 7:30 p.m. Thurs.Sat.; 2 p.m. Sun., $16$18, 209 Oberlin Road, Raleigh, 919-803-3798, www.sonorousroad.com. —Byron Woods
