The Cemetery Club (Comedy)

Posted: Thursday, August 31, 2017 by: Public Relations | Category: Arts and Entertainment


The Village Players Theatre is delighted to present the "The Cemetery Club" by Ivan Menchell, sometimes characterized as "Steel Magnolias meets Golden Girls" this heartfelt comedy tells the story of three Jewish widows who meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husbands’ 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.

Performance Dates: September 15-16, 21-23 at 8pm and Sunday, September 17 at 1pm
"The Cemetery Club" is directed by Irina Zaurov and is presented with special arrangement by Sam French Inc.
