Seminar

January 19 – February 10, 2013 (Mainstage)
By Theresa Rebeck
Directed by Tracy Brigden

Enter Kate’s sprawling, rent-controlled apartment on the Upper West Side where four aspiring young novelists meet weekly for a private writing seminar with Leonard, a literary bigwig with a penchant for harsh criticism. Insults fly, the truth stings, and relationships are made and broken as the group learns that the hardest part of writing fiction is facing the facts.
