A student's work about her teacher's affair sparks moral questions in Collected Stories, which The Bard's Town will open this weekend.
Collected Stories is to happen from July 24-27 and 31 through August 3 at 7:30 p.m. each night. All performances will take place at The Bard's Town, located at 1801 Bardstown Road in the Highlands.
Tickets for each show are $15 for general admission, $12 for students, and $12 for senior citizens. Ticket reservations are highly recommended due to limited seating, and reservations can be made at The Bard's Town website.
Collected Stories follows the lives, teachings, and works of two women, Lisa and her teacher Ruth. Over the course of six years, Lisa, thanks to Ruth's teaching, will grow from unsure student to more-than-capable writer.
The relationship faces tests, however, when Lisa, following a successful short-story collection, decides to write about an affair Ruth once had with a poet. Both face the question of whether or not another person's life and encounters should be used for another person's work and creativity.
Donald Marguilies created Collected Stories, which Andrew Epstein directed for The Bard's Town. The cast includes Carol Dines and Lenae Price.
More information on the show can be found at The Bard's Town website.
