BOOK CLUB reading 3/2/2005
Due to inclement weather, the final staged reading for the Villagers New Playwrights Series 2005 has been rescheduled from Monday evening, February 28 to Wednesday evening, March 2 at 8:00 p.m.
BOOK CLUB, by Vicki Koestler of Alexandria, VA, is an inventively madcap, 2-act comedy about the members of a book club who discover a cask of pirate treasure behind the refrigerator in the high school teacher's lounge during a tornado. In addition to the locals, there is a strange woman of indeterminate European heritage who conducts seances and a lonely refrigerator repair woman with a handy tool bag. It's all good for a laugh to chase away those winter blues.
Directed by Annette Fielder with technical assistance from Marie Fiorello.
