Karen Zacarias’ 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 wit, joy and novels galore, “The Book Club Play is a dangerous comedy about community, high and low culture, and the absolute terror of group dynamics.” – Molly Smith, Arena Stage.

Chicago premiere

Part of 100 Club and 3-Play Subscription Series

“an uproarious social comedy… Kevin Fox’s smart, hilarious production is done so well…a greatly rewarding experience… Highly Recommended!” – Chicago Critic.com, Review by Jacob Davis

“The Book Club Play @16thTheater skewers the title institution with great affection & considerable wit. Strong cast makes it work perfectly.” Kelly Kleiman, Twitter @DuelingCritters

“Zacarias’s characters are adeptly created, and her dialogue is pitch-perfect… plenty of strong acting, most notably Ann Filmer’s hilarious and moving performance as a Martha Stewart-esque control freak and Brad Harbaugh’s turn as her incorrigibly gauche husband.” — Jack Helbig, Chicago Reader

Chicago Tribune’s Pioneer Press, Feature by Catey Sullivan

“The often smart, funny dialogue covers the popular contemporary phenomenon of book clubs, the intricate relationships and conflicts that can develop, and the difference between high and low culture” — Doug Deuchler, Oak Park Wednesday Journal
