‘And did we all enjoy the books or is there revolution in the air?’

Everyone’s favourite book club reforms for more wine, cheese and outrageous revelations, as the hugely successful Bookworms by Bernard Farrell returns to the Abbey stage.

Tonight’s book club host, Ann, is struggling to stay calm, desperate to deliver the perfect evening of literary classics and late-night canapés. But when the all-female group invite their husbands to join the club, and a mysterious figure pays a visit from upstairs, everyone is forced to contend with a lot more than just Virginia Woolf.

Opinions are challenged; suspicions aroused and tempers flare as their daily lives unravel into a saga to rival even the wildest fiction.

Director Jim Culleton returns with this hugely entertaining play by celebrated playwright Bernard Farrell (I Do Not Like Thee, Doctor Fell, Canaries and Lovers at Versailles) in an evening of wine and cheese, mystery and mayhem.

An Abbey Theatre commission.
