Production Description

Casting Rubicon Theatre Company's 2013-14 season, to include "'Collected Stories," by Donald Margulies. Company states: "Emmy Award-winning actress Susan Clark stars in this compelling play about respect, rivalry, betrayal and honor. The story follows the rise and fall of a friendship between two woman writers: Ruth Steiner, a teacher and respected short-story writer, and her protégé Lisa Morrison. Over the course of six years, Lisa journeys from insecure student to successful writer. After publishing a well-received collection of stories, Lisa writes a novel based on Ruth's affair with the poet Delmore Schwartz. The play poses the question of whether a person's life events are suitable for another to use in their own creative process. According to the New York Times, 'the emotional current' of the play takes on a 'sweeping, electric life.'"
