The Forge Theatre Greets the New Year with THE CEMETERY CLUB

The Forge Theatre, 241 First Avenue Phoenixville, continues its very successful season with a production of THE CEMETERY CLUB by Ivan Menchell. This bittersweet comedy drama is directed by Linda Mandlowitz and produced by Denise Wisneski.

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.

Players include Pam Taylor, Cindy Schneider, Bev Smith, Nance Brown, and Jim Reese.

Performances are January 9, 10,16,17,18, 23,24,25. January 18 and 25 are 2:00 matinees…all other times are 8 PM.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students. Call for tickets at 610 935 1920 or
