Theatre Three presents The Novelist
Paul, a Nobel-winning novelist suffering from writer's block, his elegant but feisty wife, two sons (an actor and an antique dealer) and the actor's girlfriend are together for the first time in ages. Enter Paul's new assistant, a talented and passionate writing student. Bitter, funny chaos ensues in The Novelist, an ensemble dramedy about a cruelly destructive and fiercely protective family of artists.
The Novelist is a re-working of Theresa Rebeck’s earlier play The Butterfly Collection. Rebeck is a Peabody award-winning writer known for her most recent Broadway hit, Seminar (produced at Theatre Three, 2013-14 season), and for creating the NBC television drama, Smash. She has also written for NYPD Blue, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and LA Law.
