This award-winning play arrives at the Paramount Theatre following its off-Broadway and sold-out runs at the New York International Fringe Festival. Ben Brantley from the New York Times called this a “slap-happy five-character comedy” with “raw and magnetic dementia (that) seems destined to attract a cult following.”
What Is the Story of 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche? In 1956, the widows of the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein meet in the basement/bomb shelter of a local church for their annual quiche breakfast. In a much-anticipated ceremony, the prize-winning quiche will be announced. The sudden threat of an atomic bomb forces the women in this idyllic American town to begin sharing their deepest secrets, which lead to some not-so-shocking confessions from the society’s leaders.
Definitely not a family-friendly show, this comedy is filled with sexual innuendo piling up like layers in a freshly prepared quiche. Adults will enjoy this outrageous night of comedy, but the subject matter (and a few on-stage sight gags) are inappropriate for children under 13.
Produced by The Red Dirt Theatre Company by special arrangement with Samuel French.
