Rahway, NJ- In four performances over two days, the Union County Performing Arts Center, in cooperation with Fearless Productions and Barbaro Acting and Productions, will be presenting a look into the underbelly of the creative process in Seminar, written by modern playwright Theresa Rebeck. Audiences can catch the show on Friday, January 6 at 8 PM, Saturday January 7 at 3 PM and 8 PM and Sunday, January 8 at 3 PM at the UCPAC’s Hamilton Stage.

Seminar, set in the Upper West Side of New York City, follows the story of four aspiring writers. They are enrolled in Leonard’s ten week long writing seminar, each having paid $5,000 to attend. Leonard is an accomplished writer and professor who is anything but delicate; he attacks each student’s writing with vigor, revealing an exacting, almost cruel nature. Throughout the classes, it becomes more than just the students’ writing that is challenged. Leonard begins to challenge who the students are as people and what they believe in. Attractions form, social boundaries are broken and the students’ perceptions of true inspiration, as well as their own senses of entitlement, are forever changed.

“Theresa Rebeck has a vibrant writing style and a talent for literally producing on-stage adrenaline. She is certainly among my favorites when it comes to playwrights. Aside from the amazing Richard Kline taking on the role of 'Leonard', this cast surpassed every expectation from day one. The audience is in for a wild ride indeed.” Director, Brian Remo
