The Cemetery Club—A Dramatic Comedy by Ivan Menchell
Lockhart’s Gaslight Baker Theatre proudly presents The Cemetery Club, September 7-22 with performances on Friday and Saturday at 8 pm and 2 pm matinees on Sunday, September 16 and Saturday, September 22.Three Jewish widows 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.
