virtually at the 2020 KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival
Responses from the audience:
"Brava, Annemarie and Judy - and bravo, Austin! This was an absolutely terrific performance - and very well suited to Zoom. Rich, intimate and compelling!"
"So beautifully done. Genuinely laughed audibly several times!"
"Excellent pacing, and fabulous interaction. Fabulous Zoom adaptation of passing plates, glass, food and drink."
"Beautiful performance by both Judy and Annemarie! Such an amazing way to experience theater! I wanted to love both women and dislike both at the same time!"

"This was the first time that I have seen this play. I thought it worked really well on Zoom and I could even describe Ruth’s apartment if you asked me. Wonderful use to props to create closeness across the screens. Thank you so much. I am so happy that I could attend."
"Riveting. Complex, deeply moving relationship"

"Excellent performance and story. I was really immersed and as an artist related to the scenario which was so emotionally charged. Fantastic work Annemarie and Judy. Wonderful direction from Mr. Pendleton."

"Judy and Annemarie, wonderful character arcs within the richly etched relationship. And fabulous, nuanced direction from Austin."
"You were so great. You captured the ambiguity of the scenes so well. Thank you!"

Hi <<First Name>>,

I hope you are doing well. Austin, Judy and I are going into our last week of performances of COLLECTED STORIES live on ZOOM at the KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival. We discovered from the responses of our audience members that ZOOM works very well for this two character play: "It is as if you are sitting right there at the table with Ruth and Lisa" and "For the first time since I started using ZOOM, I totally forgot that I was watching on ZOOM."

For those of you who have attended our show, thank you so much for being there with us and supporting theater in these difficult times.
For those of you who haven't seen the show yet, but are curious to watch it from their living rooms, I would be thrilled and honored if you could make it to one of our remaining performances this week. And for those of you in Europe who can't stay up till late, no worries, we will be hosting a show at a reasonable hour soon.
Thank you!

With gratitude and much love,


There are two more performances
via ZOOM on:

  • Tonight Monday 9/21 6:30pm;

Ruth Steiner, an aging established short story writer and professor, mentors Lisa Morisson, an ambitious 26-year-old graduate student. Over the course of six years, their relationship blossoms, changes and survives incidents that threaten to destroy it. But when Ruth shares her long kept secret about a love affair with the real-life poet Delmore Schwartz and when Lisa uses this story in her first novel, the young author and the revered mentor get confronted with a complex dilemma: when is it permissible to write about another person's life without their consent?
