A new work by Arena Stage's resident playwright Karen Zacarias, the comedy The Book Club Play focuses on a woman who seems to have it all -- an adoring husband, a perfect job and a great book club. But bizarre circumstances put her life under a magnifying glass and force her friends to read between the lines. Life, love and literature may never be the same. To Nov. 6. Arena Stage -- Mead Center for American Theater, 1101 6th St. SW. Tickets are $40 to $70. Call 202-488-3300 or visit arenastage.org.
