BOOK CLUB shenanigans on stage at Everyman

By Gavin Witt | Posted in Interviews, Staff Blogs, WBJC Programs | Comments Off on BOOK CLUB shenanigans on stage at Everyman

Director Laura Kepley leads a collection of Everyman Theatre company members and local actors on a rollicking ride filled with comic chaos,  diverting disruption, literary laughs, and assorted merriment–all accompanied by some thoughtful reflections on art, friendship, and identity. It’s The Book Club Play by DC-based playwright Karen Zacarias, on stage at Everyman from March 17th through April 14th.

The play takes a loving but unflinching look at the sometimes excessive, sometimes tyrannical, sometimes ridiculous, but always surprising world of a long-time book group disrupted by a perfect storm of change: the addition of a documentarian filming their proceedings combined with the arrival of a mysterious new addition to their mix.

What ensues? Listen to Laura’s account of the result, and then see if you have the same response when you see it on stage, live. Tickets and more information are available at www.everymantheatre.org

WBJC listeners and Baltimore audiences may know Gavin from his nearly 20 years as dramaturg and associate artistic director at Baltimore Center Stage (in which capacity he was a frequent guest on WBJC to talk about programs and events), or from regular appearances alongside Jonathan Palevsky at the Charles Theater for Cinema Sundays discussions. A director, dramaturg, producer, translator, and adaptor who also teaches on the theater faculty at Towson University, Gavin is a recent addition to the WBJC team and delighted to play this new role.
