Front Row Theatre Group are getting ready to stage a play full of New York sass at Eaton Bray Hall.

Already, excitement is growing for The Cemetery Club, which centres on three very different widows who meet once a month for tea before visiting their husbands’ graves.

Unwanted change affects the group when one of the widows meets someone – disturbing their happy routine.

Barbara Morton, who plays lead character – spirited widow Ida – said: “It’s a very funny play, full of American Jewish humour but very poignant as well.

“We’re still giggling away every time we’re going through rehearsals, which is a sign of a well-written play!”

She added – “It’s been a challenge doing this particular show. We’ve never done an American Jewish play before, so getting the right accent – the right intonation for the humour – has been quite challenging, but we’ve done our best.”

The Cemetery Club runs from Thursday November 13 to Saturday November 15, starting at 7.30pm. Ring the box office on 01525 222283 for tickets.
