  The Book Club Play at Silver Spring Stage

The Book Club Play

Silver Spring Stage
10145 Colesville Road Silver Spring

An uproarious comedy about books - yes, you read that right! - and a group of friends who love them. Silver Spring Stage delights in presenting The Book Club Play by award-winning playwright Karen Zacarías. The leader of the book club has agreed to participate in a documentary by a "famous Danish filmmaker" who wishes to film them - unbeknownst to the friends. The intimate discussions that arise as they connect to different types of books, sharing their own opinions, secrets, and feelings in front of the ever-present camera lens. The result is touching moments and hilarious arguments, especially when an unexpected new member joins the group and these friends start to read between the lines. This play is smart AND fun, and everyone will feel like they are invited to join the club.

DC Metro Theater Arts - Highly Recommended

"...The Book Club Play at Silver Spring Stage is truly novel, an actual thinking person's entertainment. And as directed by Karen Fleming at a brisk and witty pace, it's the theatrical equivalent of a laugh-out-loud page turner."

MD Theatre Guide - Recommended

"...Fleming's direction is tight and crisp. It allows the comedy to flow. Even when the plot itself seems to bog down at the end, she picks up the pace so we sail through some of those more contrived parts of the final scene."

Theatre Bloom - Recommended

"...Overall, it is clear that Fleming’s direction was cohesive, effective, and joyful. The production made you want to celebrate books, friends, and the stories we have to tell. For a small donation, you can even browse the shelves of Ana and Rob’s home and take home a book for your own collection."
