About The Merry Widows

The Merry Widows
by Cenarth Fox

by arrangement with David Spicer Productions

The Merry Widows is an Australian comedy by Melbourne playwright, Cenarth Fox.

Kate is a ‘normal’ widow – going about her life as normal widows do. But what is normal in the life of an elderly widow?

Ruby hasn’t quite said goodbye to her husband yet – his ashes travel with her in her carry bag.

Good thing his name was Ern. Joan is just discovering the modern world after being a shut-in housewife all her married life. Who knew one could ‘surf’ on a computer?

Siobhan has discovered that whilst her husbands are dead, her libido isn’t. Nor is her desire to talk about it… sex, that is.

The group is thrown into chaos with the arrival of a new member who holds a secret about one of them, but who?

Five women. One secret. Whose it is, no one knows.
