Seymour, a washed-up playwright with one forgotten hit to his name, lands a gig teaching a writers' workshop.  His students are a motley collection of dreamers and amateurs, young and old.  As the weeks go by, the students' plays begin to blur the line between truth and fiction, imperiling the workshop's delicate balance.  In the Room uncovers the hopeless and heroic that exists between the lines, and off the page.
