Charismatic, fierce, brilliant, complicated, celebrity writing teacher. He takes no prisoners. Leonard deftly shreds the egos of his students. He’s contemptuous of much around him yet he appreciates beauty and honest writing. Past caring what people think of him, he is haunted by self-loathing.
Bennington educated, child of affluent New Yorkers, defensive, prickly feminist. She’s been working on the same short story for years, ever since she received praise for it at college. Leonard’s evisceration of her writing ultimately prompts her talent to emerge. She has survivor skills born of her intelligence not her privilege.
The most successful of the four students– and, not coincidentally, best connected. He can actually write, but is constantly accused of “name dropping.” He ranges from insufferable to surprising dimension over the course of the play.
The requisite sexpot, opportunistic, and confident. Deemed a good writer from the beginning, she is at the center of the group’s romantic conflicts. Even though she is beautiful she doesn’t suffer from “pretty girl syndrome”. She knows what she wants. She’ll get it.
Note: Role requires brief nudity.
