Professor-student relationships go from the classroom to the stage in PlayMakers’ next production, “Seminar,” which opens Wednesday.
The show centers around four young, hopeful writers and their professor’s exclusive class on power, sex and art.
“It’s about that relationship of ‘Who am I? What do I want to do with my life? What am I passionate about?' and then running into someone who starts critiquing that,” Director Michael Dove said.

Dove said he enjoyed both directing and watching the show. Despite working on it for a month, he said he was still entertained by the humor.
“It’s very funny, but I think what’s so great about it is that the comedy comes out of awkward situations and tense situations,” he said. “There’s a lot of humor that comes out of that, but I think it has so much depth and so much emotion behind it that I think you just feel like you go through this huge journey with this play.”
