What Is the Story of Collected Stories?
A student-teacher conference grows into a complicated professional odyssey for a famous fiction writer and her protégé in Donald Margulies’ thought-provoking play. Set in author Ruth Steiner’s rambling, book-filled Greenwich Village apartment, the action begins when Lisa Morrison arrives to have Ruth critique one of her short stories. The starstruck graduate student soon becomes Ruth’s personal assistant, and over the course of six scenes spanning six years, the mentor-mentee relationship gets turned on its head.
