From The Ponce Press, May 2013, page 9:

Book clubs take the spotlight this spring with the Atlanta premiere of The Book Club Play by Karen Zacarias at Horizon Theatre. This “delightful, fresh comedy,” as heralded by Talkin’ Broadway, follows a tight-knit book club bound for pandemonium when it becomes the focus of a documentary film.

“If you’ve ever been in a book club (or just think they’re bizarre) you’ll love laughing with this quirky group of long-time friends as everything goes haywire,” say Horizon’s Co-Artistic/Producing Director Lisa Adler. “This is the kind of smart romp that has become Horizon’s tradmark, and we’re unleashing an emsemble of Atlanta’s most talented comic actors on our stage.”

Ana lives in a letter-perfect world with an adoring husband, the perfect job, and her greatest passion: Book Club. But when her cherished circle 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. Will their beloved book club survive? Sprinkled with wit, joy, and novels galore, laughter meets literature in this delightful new comedy about books, the people who love them, and the side-splitting results when friends start reading between the lines.
