The Cemetery Club | October 2002

By Ivan Menchell.  Directed by Denise Taylor.

In this funny, wise and witty play Sam, whilst in the cemetery visiting his wife’s grave, meets three widows similarly visiting their husband’s graves.

After exchanging initial pleasantries the conversation deepens.

The three widows respond to Sam’s advances and Ida, Doris and Lucille’s lives are changed forever.

The action takes place in Ida’s living room and a cemetery in Forest Hills, Queens, New York, between September and November in the late 1980’s.
