Tom McCamus starred in this production at the Royal Manitoba Theatre and definitely dominated the stage. Not because he was upstaging everyone else, but because the role called for it.
The play is about a writer giving a private seminar to four would be writers. At least that is the plot device. The play is actually about truth and whether people truly want to hear it. Each of the four gets a critique and deals with it in a different way. And of course, they give him their opinions as well.
McCamus was brilliant as Leonard, raging about the stage in frustration. His voice is just perfect for this role.
The rest of the cast were also very good – Andrea Houssin as Kate, Grace Lynn Fung as Izzy, Nathan Howe as Martin and Ryan James Miller as Douglas.
