Description

Four aspiring young writers have paid big bucks to seek wisdom at the feet of the fearsome Leonard-once a celebrated novelist, now a cantankerous editor, teacher and grandstanding chronicler of third-world war zones.

Under Leonard's recklessly brilliant but brutally unorthodox teaching style, competition for his approval is intense. Alliances are made and broken, tactical schemes are hatched-how far are the students willing to go to make it to the top?

Tom McManusPulitzer Prize-nominee Theresa Rebeck's mordant comedy is a sparkling cocktail of ambition, power and lust-and one with an unexpected kick. Theresa is the creator of the hit television series Smash and her previous plays include Dead Accounts and Mauritius. Stratford Shakespeare Festival star Tom McCamus plays Leonard in this new production.
