The HART Studio season continues this week with “Collected Stories” by noted playwright Donald Margulies.
Margulies won the Pulitzer Prize for his 2000 play “Dinner With Friends,” and has followed that up with a number major works on and off Broadway including “Shipwrecked: An Entertainment” which HART produced as part of its 2011 Main Stage season. “Collected Stories” appeared on Broadway in 2010 at the Manhattan Theater Club and received rave reviews.
The play chronicles the relationship of an established artist and an enthusiastic fan who become a protégé, disciple, colleague, friend and finally a threatening rival. Ruth Steiner is a short story writer and Lisa Morrison her gifted student. In HART’s production, under the direction of Suzanne Tinsley, Lyn Donley appears as Ruth and Emily Warren as the ambitious student Lisa.
“Collected Stories” will perform Friday and Saturday, Feb. 10 and 11, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 12, at 3 p.m. Tickets are $10 for all adults and $6 for students, general admission. To make reservations call the HART Box Office at 456.6322. All performances are in the Feichter Studio Theatre, 250 Pigeon Street, Waynesville.
