If you like the Golden Girls, then you'll love Ida, Lucille and Doris! Three Jewish widows meet once a month for tea before visiting their husband's graves in this hilarious and touching play about cherishing the past and embracing the future. 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. He meets the widows while visiting his wife's grave. Doris and Lucille squash the budding romance between Sam and Ida. They are guilt stricken when this nearly breaks Ida's heart.
THE CEMETERY CLUB is onstage at O'Connell & Company in residence at The Park School, 4625 Harlem Road, Snyder, NY 14226, April 20 through May 21, 2017.
