Bookworms - Dunshaughlin Players
Main Auditorium | Wed 29th March - Saturday 1st April, 8pm | Tickets: €15 / €13
Written by Bernard Farrell, Bookworms, described as “hugely funny” and “wickedly observed”, is a comedy centred around an all-female book club where men have been allowed to join them for the first time.
Book club hostess Ann is determined, and desperate, to have the perfect evening of literary classics and canapés as part of her attempt to become a member of the well-to-do upper social circle. Struggling to stay calm, she has the reluctant support of husband Larry.
It is the first appearance of the husbands that brings a new dimension to the evening. Their daily lives spill over into the book discussions, where it becomes increasingly clear that books are the last things on anybody's mind during this explosive evening!
The appearance of a mysterious character and the revelation of past indiscretions ensure an evening of wine and cheese, mystery and mayhem.
A night of heartfelt comedy not to be missed.
Directed by Gerry Herbert
