THE BOOK CLUB PLAY By Karen Zacarias
April 21, 22, 28 & 29
Rehearsals begin – Mid-March
A hit comedy about books and the people who love them. When the members of a devoted book club become the subjects of a documentary filmmaker and accept a provocative new member, their long-standing group dynamics take a hilarious turn. Sprinkled with, joy and novels galore. This play contains mild adult language.
- Lily: African-American 30s or look somewhere in that age range. Says things that she doesn’t realize will “stir the pot” so to speak.
- Alex: 30s – having been dumped at the altar by his bride-to-be, decides he must change his life, which for a professor of comparative literature, means changing what he reads.
- Will: mid 30s – 40 – the closeted gay man who finally emerges into the light. Unlike many such characters, however, it seems that Will is quite unaware that he is closeted because he has never understood himself gay.
