Featuring FTC advisory company member Sarah Day, and Milwaukee actress Laura Frye
Ensconced in her Greenwich Village apartment, acclaimed writer and professor Ruth Steiner decides to take on Lisa, a 26-year-old graduate student, as her assistant. Over the course of six years, Ruth and Lisa’s relationship evolves and a friendship blossoms as the prickly, temperamental author shepherds her star-struck student toward her first success in the publishing world. But when Lisa’s new book exposes intimate details of Ruth’s life, and her fame threatens to overshadow her teacher, the mentor-mentee relationship is turned on its head.
“Collected Stories is filled to the brim with ideas and strong dialogue, and adds another feather in the cap of the consistently articulate and provocative playwright Donald Margulies.”
