A new comedy by Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck (creator of NBC's Smash), Seminar centers on Leonard, an experienced author with a long and dramatic history. He's hired by four aspiring novelists to conduct an intensive 10-week writing seminar in an Upper West Side apartment. True to Rebeck's rep as the master of quarrelsome comedy, the students get much more for their $5,000 fee than they bargained for. They soon find themselves attending a master class in ruthless and reckless behavior where writing is a blood sport, words are deadly weapons, and sex is just a tool of the trade. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
Visit the Horton Foote Society website.
Foote was the master of the one-act, and in the ’50s and ’60s made regular contributions of Texas stories in the format which were always enthusiastically reviewed and enjoyed in New York. In 1982, he wrote The Roads to Home, which is a set of three one-acts written to be performed together in one performance, and centered on three women whose small Texas town’s values ill-equip them for the tough city lives they are now leading.
Foote’s masterful storytelling is full of unblinking honesty and laced with humor. In The Roads to Home, he reveals that the women’s small town ways, built on kindness and discretion, have no system for dealing with less well-behaved feelings like terror, anguish, and passion that loom in their big city lives.
