Tabard 2016–2017 Season Event

January 20—February 15

10 in 10:2017

THIS ONE'S A “10”… Following the success of Tabard's 2014 production of 10 in 10: Perspective, our 16th season's 10 in 10: 2017 is a new collection of ten-minute plays written by emerging local playwrights, as inspired by emerging local artists.

In collaboration with the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), paintings created by emerging local artists will be selected and made available to emerging local playwrights to serve as inspiration for original ten-minute plays. Ten plays will be selected from those submitted and will be produced and presented as 10 in 10: 2017.

Tabard 2016–2017 Season Event

February 17–March 12

The Cemetery Club

YOU'LL DIE LAUGHING… THE CEMETERY CLUB, with shades of The Golden Girls, is an hysterically funny, moving, sweet-tempered romantic comedy. Ida, Lucille, and Doris are three Jewish widows who meet once a month for tea before visiting their husbands’ graves.

A chance cemetery meeting with a local widower leads these three friends to question what it means to honor the past while finding the courage to move ahead into the future.

Playwright Ivan Menchell’s Broadway credits include Bonnie & Clyde (book), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (additional material), and THE CEMETERY CLUB. For the screen, Mr. Menchell wrote an adaptation of his play starring Ellen Burstyn, Diane Ladd, and Olympia Dukakis.
