Hampstead extends Seminar, full cast announced
Roger Allam stars as a cantankerous novelist in Terry Johnson's production
The play sees four aspiring young writers seek wisdom at the feet of the caustic Leonard - once a celebrated novelist, now a cantankerous editor, teacher and grandstanding chronicler of third-world war zones.
Under Leonard's brilliant but brutally unorthodox tuition, competition for his approval is intense and the students clash.
It opens at Hampstead on 1 October (previews from 25 September).
