TBD as Douglas
In Seminar, a provocative comedy from Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck, four aspiring young novelists sign up for private writing classes with Leonard, an international literary figure. Under his recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive and others flounder, alliances are made and broken, and the conventions of hearts and minds are unmoored. The wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious as innocence collides with experience in this biting comedy.
Douglas (mid 20s-mid 30s) - The most successful of the four students; not coincidentally, he is also the most well-connected within the writing community, drawing Martin’s ire and Izzy’s interest. Though he has talent, he leans too heavily on “name dropping” as a means to acceptance. Douglas is a man who will use ten words when two will do to project intellectual depth. He ranges from insufferable to surprisingly multi-dimensional over the course of the play.
