Directed by Ken Gilbert
Featuring Felicia Hall & E. Bonnie Lewis
Ruth Steiner (E. Bonnie Lewis), a professor and lauded writer of short stories, hires graduate student Lisa Morrison (Felicia Hall) to be her assistant. Lisa, also a writer, thrives in her new role and becomes Ruth’s protégé—then her rival upon the release of her first novel, which is (unknown to Ruth) based on Ruth’s life. In Collected Stories, the complicated issue of story ownership is at the fore. This intelligent and engaging play by Donald Margulies asks questions about consent, appropriation, and the ethics of taking artistic license.
“[Collected Stories] digs into its engaging tale of aesthetics and ethics with intelligence and sharp, literate humor….Mr. Margulies has found fertile material in the struggles of the creative classes to reconcile the demands of ambition with the exigencies of life.” –New York Times
“This provocative piece of theater serves as a timely reminder that we are defined by our feelings and memories — and such precious thoughts are sacred.” –Matthew J. Palm, Orlando Sentinel
