5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche is a frolicsome little play that ventures into everybody’s favorite- absurdism! In 1956, with the ever-present threat of nuclear war looming over them, the widows of the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein meet in a renovated community center for a special annual event, where the prize-winning quiche will be declared in a much-anticipated ceremony. Will they be able to keep their cool when in the midst of their beloved annual event, Communists descend on their idyllic town?

“A hit at the New York International Fringe Festival last summer, this slap-happy, five-character comedy seems destined to attract a cult following.” – Ben Brantley, NY Times

SHOULD I SEE IT?:
-What Is 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche Like?
Audience members are given a name tag when they enter the theater, inviting them to participate in a women’s community meeting led by the cast members (but don’t worry—you won’t get called up on stage). At only 80 minutes, the show is fast and funny as the night of shocking comedy (and audience participation) flies along. By the time the final quiche crumbles, you’ll feel like a part of the atomic, retro-age narrative—and you might find yourself craving quiche just as badly as the show’s five leading ladies.
-Is 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche Good for Kids?
Definitely not. This is not really a family-friendly show by most standards- the sexual innuendo piles up like layers in a freshly prepared quiche; adults will enjoy this outrageous night of comedy, but the subject matter is probably best if it’s not served up to children under 13.

CAST:
Julie Waite – LULIE STANWYCK

Michelle Hall – WREN ROBIN
Brandi Lynn Anderson – GINNY CADBURY
