About ‘The Cemetery Club’
Lucille, Doris, and Ida are a group of feisty, widowed “golden girls.” The longtime friends get together each month for tea to gossip, share some wisecracks, and visit their husbands’ graves. As they cope with living life after death, Lucille fancies herself a swinger, Doris remains loyal to her husband’s memory, and Ida secretly wishes for a budding romance. Through their healing, they quarrel, joke around, and even compete for a new love interest in an amusing and touching comedy.Racine Theatre Guild
