The conflict between the established artist and the adulatory fan who becomes a protégé, disciple, colleague and friend – and finally threatening rival – is one of those great topics.  It resurfaces in Donald Margulies’ provocative play.  Margulies is literate, intellectually stimulating, and able to create characters of both dramatic and human interest. A story of what happens when the student surpasses the teacher, by cannibalizing the teacher’s own life story.

From Annie Keefe
WCP Associate Artist & Script in Hand Series Curator
"I’m a huge fan of Donald Margulies work. I find these characters immensely complicated and satisfying. When I realized I could secure a couple of terrific women to fill these roles, it was a no-brainer."
