Show dates are 20th - 23rd September 2017
A comedy of 2 Acts featuring 4 females and 1 male in their mid fifties to early sixties.
Three Jewish widows meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husband’s graves. Ida is sweet tempered and ready to begin a new life, Lucille is a feisty embodiment of the girl who just want to have fun, and Doris is priggish and judgemental, particularly when Sam the butcher enters the scene. He meets the widows while visiting his wife’s grave. Doris and Lucille squash the budding romance between Sam and Ida and Sam invites Mildred to a wedding that they are all due to attend instead of escorting Ida. Doris and Lucille are guilt stricken when this nearly breaks Ida’s heart.
The action takes place in the living room of Ida’s house and at the cemetery in Forest Hills, Queens.
The play is funny and humorous but also moving and poignant.
