It’s your last chance to catch Athlone Little Theatre’s lastest production - The Cemetery Club - which runs until tomorrow night, Friday April 24.
This is a contemporary play set in New York and centres around the lives of three Jewish widows Ida, Lucille, and Doris, who meet up regularly - after visiting their husbands’ graves - for a coffee and a chat.
The dynamic changes with the introduction of a handsome widower Sam who sets his sights on Ida. The play was turned into a movie starring Ellen Burstyn, Diane Ladd, and Olympia Dukakis as the three widows and Danny Aiello as Sam.
Athlone Little Theatre’s cast includes Chrissie Killian in the role of Ida, Anne Hoey as Lucille, and Anne Blackie as Doris. Add to that Harry Smith as Sam and Sally Knight in the role of Mildred and you have a line-up to rival any on Broadway!
Harry also directs the play and has a multi-talented behind-the-scenes team including Bronagh Connolly as stage manager; Anthony Quinn as lighting and sound director; John Allen as lighting and sound operator; and stage crew of Mairead Slevin.
The play runs until Friday April 24 in the theatre, with curtain up at 8pm.
