Play Club

Book Club Special Edition Forward Theater Play Club Thursday January 26th at 6:30 pm
Belleville Public Library

In place of our regular book club, join us for a special Play Club edition.


The Forward Theater Company Play Club is now free, and open to the public!

Dane County Public Libraries will now be hosting several play club meetings in conjunction with each Forward Theater show. There will be four Play Club events for each show, hosted at various libraries around Dane County. Forward Theater Play Clubs in the Library are a part of the From Page to Stage program, which is possible thanks to Beyond the Page, Madison Community Foundation, Dane Arts Commission and the Wisconsin Humanities Council.

To take part:

  • Call or stop by the Library to sign up.
  • Check out a copy of the script and study questions.
  • Join us on January 26th for the discussion.

The conversation will be led by a Forward Theater Company artist, and scenes from the play will be read aloud by Forward Theater actors.


Anthony and Rosemary are facing down middle age from neighboring farms in rural Ireland. Only a strip of land separates these eccentric souls, but with a feud simmering between their families, these introverted misfits will need to overcome a childhood grudge and years of stubborn pride to find happiness. Flinty humor and poetic passion highlight this charming and poignant play about how it’s never too late to take a chance on love.
