About the Show
Run Dates: Thursday-Saturday June 15-July 1, 2017. All performances are at 7:30pm. This production will be produced by Different Strokes! Performing Arts Collective, under the direction of Steph Hickling Beckman, assisted by Karen Stobbe.
“Winner of the 2012 New York International Fringe Festival, 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche is a farcical and absurd romp through yesteryear which leaves no button un-pushed and has no turning back once those theater doors are sealed! The show is as fast and funny as it is shocking. 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 as badly as the five leading ladies”.
It’s 1956 and the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein, a women’s guild of self-described widows, are having their annual quiche breakfast in the bomb-proof basement of a local church, where the prize-winning quiche will be declared in a much-anticipated ceremony. The widows the officers open the meeting of the membership, which includes the audience.
What to Prepare
Open call auditions will consist of cold readings from the script, and some improvisational work.
