A provocative new comedy from Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck, four aspiring young novelists are in for the schooling of their lives when they sign up for private writing classes with Leonard (Scott Plate) an international literary figure. Under his recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive and others flounder, alliances are made and broken. As tensions arise and romance falls between students, they clash over their writing, their relations, and their futures. Mature content. Recommended for audiences 17 and older.
