No one ever talks about men going through menopause, but they do.
It’s called manopause. That’s what Deborah Martin’s husband is going through. He is on a mission to regain his youth and it does not include his wife, Deb.
Finding herself with an empty nest and no one to share it with, she disappears into her books, fantasizing about all the great writers and what she’d like to do with them! One of her friends talks her into joining their book club, something she had tried to avoid for years. It proves to be the making of her in more ways than one. Not only does she meet a fabulous group of women from all different ethnic and social backgrounds, but she actually fulfills one of her fantasies…
Join Amanda Muggleton in this side-splitting, 90-minute comedy as she takes to the London stage. THE BOOK CLUB has been a nationwide hit in Australia, now London-born Muggleton brings the one-woman comedy ‘back home’.
Perhaps best known internationally for The Prisoner of Cell Block H, Muggleton has become one of Australia’s leading stage and screen credits whose myriad other credits include Blood Brothers, The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, Master Class, Shirley Valentine and many more.
