“5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche is a yummy piece hosted by five leaders of the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein. This bubbly bunch of 1950s chicks are all self-described “widows” living in an unnamed middle-American town. They are meeting in a renovated community center for their annual breakfast, where the prize-winning quiche will be declared in a much-anticipated ceremony. The pending Communist threat of atomic attack 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. Will they be able to keep their cool and preserve their history as the Red Menace closes in?”
