From the play by Roger Hall, The Book Club gives us a hysterical peek behind the closed doors of Suburbia.
Genteel housewife and mother Deborah is a self-confessed bookaholic. Her youngest daughter has finally flown the nest and her husband Wally is absent. She burns off the fuel of a mid-life crisis with endless rounds of golf and tennis.
The spice of Deborah’s real life is her book club. For the women who take part, it’s a meeting of minds – and their very different lifestyles. For Deborah, the club is a chance to gather the juicy gossip of her friends’ lives and relationships.
But when a famous author joins the group for a study session, Deborah’s own life suddenly switches from an old wives’ tale to the stuff of erotic fiction. The ensuing affair takes her love of linguistics to a whole new level.
Australia’s leading stage actress, Amanda Muggleton, returns to this brilliantly scripted star role (after her Book Club debut in 2008).
Catch The Book Club from May 7-10, 2013 at The Arts Centre Gold Coast. It is just a few minutes away from our Surfers Paradise Family Accommodation.
