WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

A group of widows meets once a month before they visit their husband's graves.

When one of them finds a new flame, trouble brews between the ladies.

That’s the story of The Cemetery Club by Ivan Menchell, a play that’s opening this Friday at TheatreNOW in Wilmington.

Ella Reischer directed the play and joined us on WECT News First at Four today to talk about the production.
