This hilarious comedy-drama concerns three friends, Doris, Lucille and Ida. All three have become widows within the past few years. Regularly visiting their husbands graves with a catch up and gossip afterwards, hence 'The Cemetery Club'.

Doris remains fiercely devoted to her late husband and takes responsibilities as a widow seriously. Lucille is eager to get her feet back in the waters of dating, partly as revenge against her late husband, who often cheated on her, and partly because she's very lonely by herself. Ida is also not used to being alone, but she doesn't feel ready to start dating again, at least not until she meets Sam, a butcher, who gradually but firmly eases his way into her life.

Doris is appalled, while Lucille is jealous; all of which comes to fruition at the wedding of their friend Mildred. This touching play about three feuding women is funny, wise and gloriously witty. If you loved The Golden Girls, you'll love this.
