Stage Right Productions presents The Cemetery Club by Ivan Menchell, June 12-27.
Returning to the 2nd Street Theater stage after six years and many requests from audience members, The Cemetery Club, directed by Susan Benson, is a story about love and friendship.
The play touches on many subjects and themes, some humorous, some are heartrending featuring Susan Benson, Rachel Deegan, Gloria Anderson, Vicki Pennock and Ken McClintock.
Three Jewish widows meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husband’s 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. 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.
