The Cemetery Club

by Ivan Menchell

This sweet-tempered and moving comedy is about three widows who meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husbands’ graves. The three are very different in their outlook on life: one is a feisty gal who just wants to have fun; one is ready to start a new life; and one is still carrying the torch for her late husband, and is critical of the other two. This group dynamic goes well until a widower comes into the picture, and the women need to decide whether there is more to life than re-visiting the past.
Recommended for age 18 and up.
