 See “Collected Stories”  

Ruth Steiner (Sara Morsey, right) is a celebrated writer having burst on to the literary scene with a book of short stories when she was in her early 20s. Her fame and promise were short lived as she quickly faded as a published writer. She has maintained her place in the literary society of New York as a teacher of writing and a nurturer of writing talent. Lisa Morrison (Kim Stephenson, left) is Ruth’s student turned confidante turned competitor – for her first novel, Lisa has cannibalized Ruth’s experiences, most specifically her youthful, shattering affair with the poet Delmore Schwartz. Directed by Howard Millman, this story by Donald Margulies will keep you engaged to the surprising conclusion.  

Read the review by Kay Kipling of Sarasota Magazine here. “There’s welcome, sharp humor in ‘Collected Stories’ … [the] last scene is bound to leave you with a lasting impression … and the lingering question of who and what is right here.”
