A Staged Reading

Monday, November 9, 2015

The Monday Club

Five Wives, Lovers, and Others Talk Openly About Sex, Deception, Love, and Betrayal – a play adapted by Victoria Zackheim from her ground-breaking book of essays.
Co-starring five well-known actresses in an ensemble cast who will perform a staged reading.

From some of America’s top writers comes a groundbreaking, compulsively readable and bestselling anthology about that taboo subject — women who steal husbands and lovers from other women, the consequences for those left behind, and the impact made by the vixen, the Lorelei, the Jezebel … the bitch … on families and our futures.
