The Book Club Play

Loads of laughter and literature collide in this smart hit comedy about books and the people who love them. Ana is a Type A personality who lives in a letter-perfect world with an adoring husband, the perfect job and her greatest passion: Book Club. But when her cherished group becomes the focus of a documentary film, their intimate discussions about life and literature take a turn for the hilarious in front of the inescapable camera lens. Add a provocative new member along with some surprising new book titles, and these six friends are bound for pandemonium. Sprinkled with fun theatrical references to documentaries and novels galore from Moby Dick and Age of Innocence to Twilight and The Da Vinci Code, this buoyant comedy on contemporary culture will have everyone laughing … and reflecting.  The Book Club Play is a delightful new play about life, love, literature and the side-splitting results when friends start reading between the lines.

Themes

  • The characters in this play find themselves feeling self-conscious because there is a camera in the room. Have you noticed the impacts, positive or negative, that a camera can have? How might this impact become larger in an era where we integrate cameras and social media into so much of our lives? 
  • The characters find themselves deeply changed through the experience of reading a book and discussing it with others. What books have impacted you? Is there a book that played a role in changing you on a deep level?
  • Some of the characters realize that the way they have been living needs to shift. It isn't easy for them to admit this to their loved ones. How do you navigate big changes, either within yourself or within someone in your life?
Contains mature language and themes, including queer identity, infidelity and sexual activity. Children should be 14 years of age or older to attend this performance.
