Invite a friend
'Cemetery Club' Play at the Tipping Point Theatre
- From a Tipping Point Theatre press release
The Tipping Point Theatre opens the last show in its 2011-12 “5th birthday season” with this lovely comedy about life-long friendships.
Lucille, Doris, and Ida are Jewish widows and the surviving members of longtime best friends. They get together once a month for tea and a visit to the cemetery where their husbands are buried. Each woman deals with the passing of her husband in her own way. Lucille still fancies herself as a flamboyant swinger, Doris is a traditional matronly widow still devoted to her departed husband, and Ida has happy memories of her husband and their marriage and is in no hurry to move on. How they heal, quarrel, cope with the past, and learn to date again is the hallmark of this bittersweet comedy about life and friendship.
“The women in this show have been friends for many years and have a really fun rapport with each other,“ said director, Beth Torrey. “The best part of the production is that it focuses on women in a later stage in life and their unique friendships.” When asked about the challenges of the show Torrey says, ”The script takes place in two locations: a living room and a cemetery. They both have to be equally represented on the stage in a creative way and I think our great design team has achieved that!”
Cemetery Club runs from May 10 through June 17, 2012. The curtain rises at 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, with matinees at 3 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. A special matinee performance has been added on Wednesday May 23 at 3 p.m. The theatre is located at 361 E. Cady St. in Northville. Tickets are $28 to $30 for adults and $26 to $28 for students and senior citizens, and are available now by calling the box office at 248-347-0003.
This production is supported, in part, by an award from the MICHIGAN COUNCIL FOR ARTS AND CULTURAL AFFAIRS and the NATIONAL ENDOWMENT for the ARTS.
