Ground UP Productions revives Donald Margulies' powerful drams

From Ground UP Productions, the company behind the New York premiere of The People vs. Mona and the world premiere of The Optimist, comes the revival of Collected Stories, Donald Margulies' Pulitzer Prize-nominated play.

Collected Stories follows the dynamic relationship between two writers '" one at the beginning of her career and the other at the other end. The duo meets over six years, and endures success, petty jealousies and small betrayals.

"Probing the development and ultimate disintegration of a student-teacher relationship over the course of six years, Donald Margulies' new play is an engaging, witty and painful work." '"Time Out

"As usual, Margulies holds the rich ore of his material up to the light so that it sends beams in every direction…always fluid and lively, the play is thick with ideas, like a stockpot of good stew." '"Village Voice
