Kandis Chappell recreates the role of Ruth Steiner in Donald Margulies' Collected Stories, finishing its scheduled run at San Diego's Old Globe Theatre Oct. 23. The show opened Sept. 18. Chappell originated the role in the play's world premiere at South Coast Rep in 1996. Joining her in the two-character play is Sarah Rafferty, who is making her Globe debut. Rafferty has previously appeared in Molly's Dream, Twelfth Night and The Moonstone at Williamstown Theatre Festival. She earned an MFA at the Yale School of Drama.
Anne McNaughton directs this tale of an aging writer and her young protégé, whose thirst for fame, power and a story to tell undermines their seemingly warm, respectful relationship.
The Old Globe Theatre is located in Balboa Park. For tickets and information call (619) 239-2255.
