THE STORY: 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's provocative new play,
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Margulies' best-known play, Sight Unseen, is a moody, intelligent meditation on modern art and the creative process. In his new play, he returns to those themes, this time focusing on two writers--one just starting out, the other a grizzled old veteran--and the relationship that blossoms between them as the older mentors her student, shepherding her toward the first glimmers of success and acclaim. Beautiful, heartfelt, tightly written, the play never resorts to easy cliche s or cinematic notions of what it is to be a writer: there are no great scenes of agonized genius at work--or at play. Instead, Margulies shows us, in six sharp, clear-eyed scenes, set in each of six years in his characters' lives, the everyday moments that make up two lives, the small disappointments and smaller triumphs, the white lies and seemingly minor betrayals that mark a relationship. And it all makes fascinating reading. Once started, the 85-page play is hard to put down. --Jack Helbig"
