This bittersweet comedy-drama concerns three friends, Doris, Lucille, and Esther, have become widows within the past few years. Once a week, they gather to visit their husbands’ graves and meet at a deli afterward to talk about their lives. Each has a different view of widowhood and devotion to their late husbands. The Cemetery Club, a story about love and friendship, has been compared to The Golden Girls and Steel Magnolias, with good reason. It’s a play with an important message: life may change, but love will always remain.
