the story

They came for a class in writing. They got a lesson in survival. In Seminar, four aspiring young novelists sign up for private writing classes with Leonard (Alan Rickman), an international literary figure. 

Under his recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive and others flounder, alliances are made and broken, sex is used as a weapon and hearts are unmoored.  The wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious as innocence collides with experience in this biting new comedy. This is its world premiere.
