This hit comedy about books and the people who love them is “Lord of the Flies with Wine and Dip.” When the members of a devoted book club become the subjects of a documentary filmmaker and accept a provocative new member, their club meetings take a hilarious turn. Sprinkled with wit, joy and novels galore, THE BOOK CLUB PLAY is a dangerous comedy about community, loving books, high and low culture, and the absolute terror of group dynamics.
