The dilemma presented in this story is one argued through the ages - Who owns a story? Who has the right to tell it? Ruth and Lisa wove a complex relationship - one of teacher and pupil and another as surrogate mother and daughter. Playwright Donald Margulies prods the audience to take sides, makes you ask yourself where to draw the line. He presents both sides of the story but it's highly likely you'll walk out of the theatre with an opinion on one side or the other.
Who's side will you take?
