A different perspective, 6th Street’s “The Book Club Play”

Of the many things to love about 6th Street Playhouse’s “The Book Club Play,” three can be found in a message from the director, Jess Headington.  She wants to create a situation where the audience can see the world from a different perspective.  Through humor people can find, as the main character Ana obsessively seeks, “our better selves.”  Discovery and new perspectives, especially while laughing, are the products of smart comedy.
