Seminar

By Theresa Rebeck
Directed by Lauri MacMillan

In Seminar, a provocative comedy from Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck, four aspiring young novelists sign up for private writing classes with Leonard, an international literary figure. The story begins with Kate, a well-to-do Upper West-Sider with a fancy apartment who arranges the seminar for herself and three friends. Leonard’s unorthodox teaching style soon pits the classmates against each other: some of them flourish under his version of tough love, while others flounder with self-doubt. The wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious as innocence collides with experience in this biting Broadway comedy.

Martin (25-30) Insecure, talented, intense writer who is struggling financially. Must be comfortable on stage in underwear.

Kate (25-30) Bennington-educated, defensively prickly, smart writer whose idea it was to hire Leonard. Must be comfortable on stage in underwear.

Izzy (25-30) Alluring and shameless. Recognizes opportunity whenever she sees it. Confident in herself and secure in her writing. Must be comfortable on stage in underwear.

Douglas (25-30) Well-connected, preppyish, a bit of a bloviator, but not without redeeming qualities.
