Play Club extends a successful Forward Theater Co. program into the library world. Play Club is part book club, part performance experience. This program presents the opportunity to explore a play in depth through guided discussion, performance of scenes by actors, and discussion with director and actors. Participants will gain a new perspective on what makes a play work, its issues and struggles, and how it is brought to life on stage.
Participants will sign up at the library for Play Club and will receive a copy of the book Learning to Stay, by Erin Celello, to read prior to Play Club. This book is currently being adapted as a play by Jim DeVita and will be preformend by Forward Theater March-April, 2017.
Program last approximately 90 minutes.
