The Clare Rose Playhouse Presents ‘Collected Stories’

October 25, 2010

PATCHOGUE, NY OCTOBER 26, 2010 The Clare Rose Playhouse, a community theater located on the Long Island Campus of St. Josephs College, will continue its 2010-11 season with Collected Stories, by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies. The show will run November 5 -21.

Collected Stories follows the relationship of two writers, an aging author with a romantic past and a young student who wants to benefit from and exploit the stories of her mentor. This interesting story of betrayal was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in 1997, but in 2000, Margulies actually won the Pulitzer Prize for his production of Dinner with Friends, which was later turned into a film for HBO.

Individual tickets for this show are priced at $15; $12 for students and seniors. Show times are 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, please call the box office at 631.654.0199.


The Clare Rose Playhouse, which serves as a major teaching facility for the Colleges Theater courses, is accessible via the South Service Road of Sunrise Highway, just east of Exit 52 (Waverly Avenue) in Patchogue, on the northeast corner of the campus of St. Josephs College. A former cottage converted in 1985 through the generosity and guidance of the man for whom it is named, the Playhouse serves as a major teaching facility for the Colleges theater courses and a training ground for young actors. The Playhouse is the site of community theater productions of musicals, dramas, comedies, cabaret acts, musical performances, dance troupes and comedians.
