Bookworms is back at The Abbey Theatre

After a hugely popular debut at the Abbey Theatre in 2010, Bernard Farrell’s hit play Bookworms is back. Set in a book club this is a ‘brilliant, fun, entertaining comedy’ - (ARENA - RTÉ Radio 1) that lovers of literature are sure to enjoy.


Tonight is Ann’s debut as host of her book club and she is determined to deliver a perfect evening of literary classics in her model home. But her best laid plans come undone as the usually all-female group has invited their husbands to join the club. Soon the nibbles and small talk give way to accusations and revelations to rival the most outrageous fiction.
