This moving and very funny new play chronicles the relationship between Ruth Steiner, a prominent New York writer and teacher, and Lisa Morrison, her young student, assistant, and protégé. Their careers intersect over a six-year period in which Lisa's ascendancy challenges her teacher's preeminence. When the blossoming writer betrays her mentor's confidence, Ruth challenges Lisa about their broken trust and confronts her own mortality.
