City Paper is not for tourists
There is no deeper meaning to the title of Evan Linder and Andrew Hobgood’s play 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche. It takes place at the annual quiche breakfast of the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein, and the five guests sit around chit-chatting about the events of the day. But it’s set in 1956, so instead of healthcare and politics, the ladies focus on the imminent threat of nuclear war. Over the course of the evening, the play evolves from a pun-filled comedy about sex and breakfast tarts into something stranger and more absurd.
