The conflict between the established artist and the adulatory fan who becomes a protege, disciple, colleague and friend - and finally a threatening rival - is the subject of Margulies’ provocative play about the prominent short story writer Ruth Steiner and her student turned confidante turned competitor Lisa Morrison. In a unique twist, the women are teacher and student, both in academic and real life, come from vastly different backgrounds, and for her first novel Lisa has also cannibalised Ruth’s life experiences, including her youthful, shattering affair with the poet Delmore Schwartz. Probing the development and ultimate disintegration of their relationship through six scenes covering six years,  Collected Stories is an engaging, witty and occasionally painful gem of a play.
