Blood, Sweat and Tears in the Writer’s Den

Four aspiring young writers ante up big bucks to learn from a legendary novelist, but their fiction and their egos will be unsparingly dissected before he’s through. Ray Dooley (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) leads the no-holds-barred master class on power, sex and the nature of art. Ferocious and fast-paced with sparkling wordplay, Seminar takes no prisoners.
