fizzy, funny delight
Can a book club be more than just a book club? When a documentary filmmaker sets up a camera and the wine starts flowing, a lot more than literature gets discussed. Truths are told and secrets are revealed as six young professionals find that there is more to a book—and life—than the cover. A sweet, tart comedy with all the feels.
APPROXIMATE RUN TIME: 2 hours and 15 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission
The Book Club Play is a modern comedy that contains adult situations and language. Recommended for patrons 14 years old and above.

“Playwright Karen Zacarías has written a whip-smart play that celebrates our relationships to the literature we love and the friends we cherish.
