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.

All IRT patrons attending public performances must show a photo ID and proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR test (administered no more than 72 hours prior to the performance), in addition to wearing a mask. By purchasing a ticket, you acknowledge and agree to comply with the terms of our policies.

Artistic Note:
“Playwright Karen Zacarías has written a whip-smart play that celebrates our relationships to the literature we love and the friends we cherish. Book clubs celebrate great stories and our ability to love different things. We hope you settle in with this quirky group for an evening of secrets revealed through the power of a good book." – Benjamin Hanna, IRT’s Associate Artistic Director and Director of The Book Club Play
