Seminar Auditions

 

Monday 12, Wednesday 14 & Monday 19 november

Playwright Theresa Rebeck | Director Kirsten Page

There's only one thing harder than writing your first novel. Letting him read it.

Set in present-day New York City, Seminar follows four young writers — Kate, Martin, Douglas, and Izzy — and their professor, Leonard. Each student has paid Leonard $5,000 for a ten-week writing seminar to be held in Kate's Upper West Side apartment. As tensions rise and romance falls, they clash over their writing, their relations, and their futures.

Seminar is the provocative new comedy from Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck.
