Everyone wants to belong to the Club, but what will it cost you?
Three married couples collide in a suburban living room one autumn Sunday – what they think is a refuge from the rock ‘n roll turbulence outside their neighborhood – only to discover there’s no escape from the era’s cultural upheaval.
The Club is getting its world premiere at the George Street Playhouse, #1 New York Times bestselling novelist Bohjalian (The Flight Attendant, Hour of the Witch) also premiered his critically-acclaimed stage adaptation of his novel, Midwives, in 2020 at GSP.
Chris Bohjalian’s The Club, is rich with biting wit and startling twists as it explores racism, marriage, and the lies we tell ourselves daily. And though the play is set in 1968, it’s eerily timely.
