Our next production will be "The Cemetery Club" by Ivan Menchell from 12 - 16 October 2004.

Ida, Lucille and Doris are part of a club - The Cemetery Club. Every month they meet at Ida's New York house for tea, then trundle off down to the cemetery to remember the good times and gossip with their late husbands. Then one day they meet Sam and the lives of the three widows will never be the same again.

The Cemetery Club is not a play about death but rather a celebration of life. It is warm and tender and yet, at the same time, raucous and hilarious. It combines belly laughs and a lump in the throat. The audience are left not knowing wether to laugh or cry and end up doing both.

This is a beautifully observed play - gentle, touching and with a wicked sense of humour. What more could you ask of a night at the theatre?
