Donald Margulies' provocative play, COLLECTED STORIES, chronicles the relationship of Ruth Steiner, teacher and respected short story writer, and her student and protégée, Lisa Morrison. Under Ruth’s mentorship, Lisa journeys from insecure student to successful writer. After publishing a well-received collection of short stories, Lisa writes a novel based on Ruth's affair with poet Delmore Schwartz, drawing the women into a moral dilemma -is it appropriate for a writer to use another person’s life events as fuel for their creative process? At the heart of Margulies’ story is the conflict between the established artist and the adulatory fan who becomes a protégé, disciple, colleague and friend—and finally threatening rival. COLLECTED STORIES is a funny and sad meditation on issues of friendship, rivalry, honor and the waning power that accompanies aging.

Donald Margulies is a dynamic American playwright who received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2000 for his play, Dinner With Friends.
