Cemetery Club is the story of three Jewish widows. They are the surviving half of three sets of long time best friends. Each of whom is in a different stage of healing and moving on with her life. Once a month the three women meet to pay their respects to their husbands, who are all buried in the same cemetery.
Characters (50 to 60 years): 4 women, 1 man
Ida—is the gentlest and most charming of the widowed friends
Lucille—is the most brazen one
Doris—is the most conservative of the widows
Sam—is the widower; but is willing to take a chance on happiness
Mildred—is a show-off and a flirt (smaller role)
Actors need to have a great sense of comedic timing and speak with a Jewish accent. Actors will be asked to read from the Cemetery Club script.
We will also need set builders, set decorators, costumes, hair and make-up, lights, sound, props and stage crew.
