The Book Club Play
by Karen Zacarías

Directed by Karen Fleming

September 20 – October 12, 2019
Matinees: September 29 and October 6 at 2pm

A comedy about books — yes, you read that right! — and a group of friends who love them. Anna is a Type A personality leader of a Book Club to which she has compelled her adoring husband and a diverse assemblage of friends to join. Unbeknownst to them all, she has agreed to participate in a documentary by a “famous Danish filmmaker” who wishes to film them. The intimate discussions that arise as the friends connect to different types of books take on a new kind of importance as they share their own opinions, secrets, and feelings in front of the ever-present camera lens and result in touching moments and hilarious arguments, especially when an unexpected new member joins the group and these friends start to read between the lines. This play is smart AND fun, and everyone will feel like they are invited to join the club.
