HIT Productions to Present THE BOOK CLUB, Nov 1-9
Genteel housewife and mother Deborah has an addiction. 'I'm a bookaholic,' she confesses. 'I just can't help myself.'
Deborah's youngest daughter has finally flown the nest and her husband Wally is absent, burning off the fuel of a mid-life crisis with endless rounds of golf and tennis. Deborah is also occupied, enjoying romantic lunches with Martin Amis and passionate hotel trysts with John Updike. But that's just in her dreams. 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) to give us a hysterically funny peek behind the closed doors of suburbia.
