The nest on granville island

about this show

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, sex is used as a weapon, and hearts are unmoored. The wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious as innocence collides with experience in this biting Broadway comedy.

"Seminar is honest, poignant and riveting [...]

Debut production from Alex&Main is an auspicious start"

"The actors and I live these character’s truths every day. We’ve worked hard to start from scratch, and build a play into something beautiful. To honour the playwright. We are proud of this. We have to sacrifice a lot for the love of play."
