By Donald Margulies
Directed by Jade King Carroll
Berlind Rehearsal Room - 7pm

When promising protégée becomes professional rival, even the closest of mentor-student relationships is at risk. Collected Stories, a modern classic, is an electric, rich drama which asks us to consider who our stories really belong to. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies crafts a spellbinding portrait of two brilliant and fierce writers in this absorbing, poignant play about what happens when the ones we teach begin to outgrow us.




In The Writer’s Voice
Berlind Rehearsal Room - 7pm

An extraordinary opportunity to hear writers and composers reading and performing excerpts from their current works-in-process. A rare glimpse into the creative process, this evening will give you a chance to hear from some of your favorite writers, and maybe meet some new ones along the way!
