By Theresa Rebeck
One of today’s most prolific playwrights, Cincinnati native Theresa Rebeck, has created a taut, funny and scathing look at her own field…writing. Seminar is just off a very successful Broadway run where it was a vehicle for Alan Rickman and several other of the hottest New York actors. The play looks at a post-graduate writing seminar led by a jaded professor who seems more interested in criticizing his students than teaching them. As we begin to know the students and teacher, we find that we are learning about the true price of success and failure.
