5 Lesbians Eating A Quiche      written by Evan Linder and Andrew Hobgood    CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS    

The “widows” comprising the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein have gathered for their annual quiche breakfast, 1956 edition. And these women really, really love quiche, as long as it’s meatless; the Society’s motto, “No men, no meat, all manners,” is no joke. A lighthearted morning quickly devolves into an emergency as the group’s nightmare comes true: An A-bomb hits, the meeting hall becomes a fallout shelter, and all but one of the quiches is locked on the other side of a self-sealing door. When the ladies devour the last quiche, latent feelings rise to the surface as one, ahem, finishes it off with intensity.  This ensemble piece is smart, sharp and hysterically funny. – Time Out Chicago
