At 651 Yonge St., just south of Bloor St., the Panasonic is in the heart of downtown Toronto, within walking distance of the boutiques and galleries of Yorkville, the fashionable shopping of Bloor West and Church Street, the Royal Ontario Museum and the campus of University of Toronto.
Four aspiring young writers have paid big bucks to seek wisdom at the feet of the fearsome Leonard—once a celebrated novelist, now a cantankerous editor, teacher and grandstanding chronicler of third-world war zones.
Under Leonard’s recklessly brilliant but brutally unorthodox teaching style, competition for his approval is intense. Alliances are made and broken, tactical schemes are hatched—how far are the students willing to go to make it to the top?
Tom McManus Pulitzer Prize-nominee Theresa Rebeck’s mordant comedy is a sparkling cocktail of ambition, power and lust—and one with an unexpected kick. Theresa is the creator of the hit television series Smash and her previous plays include Dead Accounts and Mauritius. Stratford Shakespeare Festival star Tom McCamus plays Leonard in this new production.
