In Seminar, four aspiring young novelists sign up for private writing classes with Leonard (Tom Hickey), 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 comedy.
The production team for Seminar includes: Marti Lyons (director), Lexie Higgins (stage manager), Garvin Jellison (production manager), Jeffrey Glass (production manager), Gordon Granger (technical director), Joanne Iwanicka (scenic designer), Michael Stanfill (lighting designer), Chris Kriz (sound designer), Kristin DeiTos (costume designer), Andrea Awad (props designer) and John Kelly (master electrician).
