The Cemetery Club

by Ivan Menchell

directed by Noel Thompson


Our next play is The Cemetery Club, on the 12th-14th of April. Three Jewish widows meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husbandsí graves. Ida is sweet tempered and ready to begin a new life; Lucille is a feisty embodiment of the girl who just wants to have fun; and Doris is priggish and judgmental, particularly when Sam the butcher enters the scene. The Broadway production starred Eileen Heckart as Lucille. It was made into a film, starring Ellen Burstyn, Dianne Ladd, and Olympia Dukkakis.

"Funny, sweet tempered, moving." - The Boston Globe
