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 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 squash the budding romance between Sam and Ida. They are guilt stricken when this nearly breaks Ida’s heart.
This Broadway play was later made into a film, starring Ellen Burstyn, Dianne Ladd, and Olympia Dukakis.
All characters are in their late 50s to early 60s.
The production will open Friday, June 3 and run through Sunday, June 19. Performances will be at 7 pm Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 pm Sundays.
