MJTC to Produce COLLECTED STORIES During Women's History Month
Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company (MJTC) continues its 2 3rd season with Collected Stories by Donald Margulies. Jennie Ward will make her MJTC directorial debut. Ruth Steiner is a respected author in the autumn of her career when she hires Lisa, a graduate student, to be her assistant. Under Ruth's mentorship, Lisa's talent is unleashed, but when Lisa writes a novel based upon her teacher's past, their friendship explodes with questions about intellectual property and the ownership of experiences.
This gem of a play, by one of today's most admired playwrights, displays " tangled connections between creativity and ideology ... thick with ideas like a stockpot of good stew. " (Village Voice, New York) Collected Stories features Ashley Rose Montondo as Lisa (who was seen at the Guthrie Theater in To Kill A Mockingbird and The Crucible), and Maggie Bearmon Pistner as Ruth (who was seen at MJTC in Aunt Raini, The Tale of the Allergist's Wife and The History of Invulnerability).
