Collected Stories is a two-woman play that traces the evolution and devolution of a particular mentor/protégée relationship between the fictional successful author Ruth Steiner and her young, eager student Lisa. Their professional relationship and friendship grow ever closer until it is pushed to the limit. Set in the early 1990's, the play harkens back to 1950s/1960s Greenwich Village early beatnik poet movement and the rich influences that still define so much of the American literary world. As we learn more about Ruth's past and Lisa's drive to success, the complicated entanglement of fact and fiction offers intriguing questions and an emotional battleground in which each witness must choose a side.
