PULITZER Prize finalist and OVATION winner Donald Margulies “Collected Stories” launched by three-time ACADEMY AWARD nominee Diane Ladd (Drama Desk Award nomination) at the Odyssey Theatre for a limited run. Collected Stories had an extended sold-out run at Manhattan Theatre Club in New York.
A story of friendship, ambition, and betrayal between two writers…as "there is only room for one at the top." A stimulating jaunt through an unexpected evolution of lessons, from writing, ethics, and trust, to drawing boundaries.
Penned by the Pulitzer Prize winner (Dinner With Friends), Margulies reveals, “themes cross cultures…mentors and protégés exist everywhere. Most people have felt betrayed or committed betrayal, deliberately or unknowingly. It is primarily a play about how human beings try to engage one another, pass along traditions, fulfill the powerful need for family. I have always been interested in the ways that we create families out of our friends or acquaintances.”
COLLECTED STORIES opens Saturday, September 8th and runs Thursdays-Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 3pm through October 14, 2012. The Odyssey Theatre is located at 2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025. Tickets are $20-$30. For reservations and info: 310-477-2055 or http://www.odysseytheatre.com/collectedstories/
