Written by Ivan Menchell & directed by David Morgan, The Cemetery Club tells the story of three New York Jewish widows who meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husbands’ graves.
Ida is sweet tempered and ready to begin a new life, Lucille is a feisty embodiment of the girl who just wants to have fun, and Doris is priggish and judgmental, particularly when Sam the butcher enters the scene. He meets the widows while visiting his wife’s grave. Doris and Lucille attempt to squash the budding romance between Sam and Ida and are guilt stricken when this nearly breaks Ida’s heart.
