"Collected Stories" is a two-character drama that takes an intimate look at the lives of a pair of writers, focusing on their friendship, ambitions, conflicts, rivalries and betrayals. Ruth Steiner, played by Co-Artistic Director Kim Tobin-Lehl, is an established scribe from Greenwich Village in New York. Famous for her short stories, she wants to share her knowledge and passion with the next generation of young and hungry authors. But when Lisa Morrison arrives, Ruth may have got more than she bargained for in this intense and funny play about art and the creative process. "The Hollywood Reporter" says: ”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.” [less-]

Mary Chase's Pulitzer Prize-winning play tells the story of Elwood P. Dowd, a polite and friendly man with a very strange best friend -- a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch invisible rabbit named Harvey. Elwood's sister Veta is concerned the rabbit will interfere with her life as a socialite, so she tries to have Elwood committed at the local sanatorium. Veta is so hysterical when she explains her brother's condition that she's committed instead. Elwood leaves the sanatorium grounds unbothered, turning the town upside-down as everyone goes on the lookout for this mild-mannered hero and his invisible rabbit.

A heart has suddenly become available for transplant — and the members of St. Patricks Hospital's Heart Transplant Selection Committee have only a matter of minutes to decide which of three patients will receive it.

Watch it all unfold at A.D. Players Theater in Houston. [less-]
