The Gloucester Stage presents a return engagement of last season’s Elliot Norton Award winning production of Donald Margulies’ play with the original team of actor Nancy Carroll and director Eric Engel.
Donald Margulies has created two of the most vivid and moving characters of his career – Ruth Steiner is a tough, highly respected author and professor with a romantic past, and Lisa Morrison is her adoring, young student and protégé. Over 6 years through 6 scenes, Collected Stories eavesdrops on their relationship as it moves from teacher/student to colleagues, amidst issues of success, artistic license, friendship, ageing and betrayal. Here is your opportunity to see this thought-provoking story of two women writers’ struggle with issues of friendship, artistic license, age and betrayal.
