In Collected Stories, prominent short-story writer Ruth Steiner takes on a new student, Lisa Morrison. The women are teacher and student, both in academia and in life, and they come from different social milieus. Ruth’s student eventually becomes her confidante and ultimately, her competitor. For her first novel, Lisa cannibalizes Ruth's experiences, including her youthful, shattering affair with a famous poet. Literate and intellectually stimulating, Collected Stories confronts the great age-old topic: the conflict between the established artist and the adulatory fan who becomes a protégé, disciple, colleague and friend—and finally threatening rival.

This is probably Margulies' best play to date…NY Post.

...An affecting character study and a well-drawn portrait of the insular world of fiction writers, demonstrating his gift for sharply written and incisive dialogue.Hollywood Reporter.

Collected Stories is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.

On his morning bike ride on a local trail, Jerry comes upon a sign: DANGER: MOUNTAIN LION IN AREA. He avoids an encounter with the predator, but as his day unfolds the presence of wildlife in the city becomes more and more pronounced… and more and more peculiar! Animals are appearing, people are disappearing – is there a connection? Are the animals launching an attack on the humans annexing their territory or is there a more fundamental change afoot? Along with his friends, Bernard (a university professor) and Lily (a waitress), Jerry tries to discover an explanation for the transformations happening around him, all the while fighting off the animal world and clinging to the unique qualities that make us human beings.

The Emerging Voices Project was created to contribute to the development of new work in the Chicago theatre scene and to bring opportunities to the Triton College community to work with professional playwrights.

This season, we are once again privileged to host a Resident Playwright from Chicago Dramatists, Chicago’s premiere play development company and the artistically-acclaimed home for writers working at the forefront of American theatre.

Middle-aged siblings, Vanya and Sonia, share a home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives. Suddenly, their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also, on the scene, are sassy maid Cassandra, who can predict the future and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha.

Broad comic acting is raised to the level of high art… deliriously funny …a heedless good time.NY Times.

…Riotous …The show's a ton of fun even if you can't tell your Seagull from your Uncle Vanya… This is the kind of full-on comedy that's sadly rare on Broadway.NY Post.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
