COLLECTED STORIES

a drama by Donald Margulies
Directed by Bridget Kathleen O’Leary
Charles Mosesian Theater
OCT 9 - 30/2011

Ruth Steiner, a critically acclaimed, seasoned author, takes her student, Lisa, under her wing. What begins as a mentorship flourishes into a deeper maternal friendship. When Lisa becomes a much-admired published writer and uses Ruth’s secretive life story for her own novel, the balance of power shifts and the boundaries of their relationship is called into question. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies challenges audiences to answer the questions: Does your story belong to you? Does someone else have the right to tell your story?

“[Collected Stories] digs into its engaging tale of aesthetics and ethics with intelligence and sharp, literate humor.”
