About this show

Four aspiring young writers have paid big bucks to 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. Alliances are made and broken - in bed and out, tactical schemes are hatched - how far are they willing to go to make it to the top? Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck's mordant comedy is a cocktail of ambition, power and lust - with an unexpected kick.
