THE CEMETARY CLUB

September 21 - October 1

While the title may imply drama, this comedy is done very much in the style of a sitcom – think THE GOLDEN GIRLS. Three Jewish widows meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husbands’ graves. Ida is sweet tempered and ready to begin a new life (ROSE); Lucille is a feisty embodiment of the girl who just wants to have fun (BLANCHE); and Doris is priggish and judgmental (DOROTHY), particularly when Sam the butcher enters the scene. He meets the widows while visiting his wife’s grave. Comedy ensues. It was made into a film, starring Ellen Burstyn, Dianne Ladd, and Olympia Dukkakis.
