The Cemetery Club
A Comedy by Ivan Menchell
Directed by Kris McMurray
May 19th thru June 24th, 2017
Three Jewish widows meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husbands’ graves. Ida played by Barbara Horn, is sweet tempered and ready to begin a new life, Lucille, played by Karen Gagliardi, is a feisty embodiment of the girl who just wants to have fun, and Doris, played by Tracy Costa, is straitlaced and judgmental, particularly when Sam, (Russell Fish) the butcher and an eligible widower, enters the picture with Mildred (Bonnie Sprague). Doris is appalled when she discovers that Ida is dating again and loudly protests that she's being disrespectful to her late husband, while Lucille is more than a bit jealous that Ida snagged a good man before she could. Doris and Lucille are determined to squash the budding romance between Sam and Ida. Thus the conflict begins, and the years of friendship and sisterly love are put to the test.
Directed by Kris McMurray, The Cemetery Club is a story filled with lighthearted banter, laughs, and moments where you won't be able to hold back the tears.
