5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche
Wednesdays, Thursdays, 7 p.m., Fri., April 14, 8 p.m. and Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through April 22 2017
The Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein has three rules: “No men, no meat, all manners.” But when the Society’s annual quiche breakfast is rudely interrupted by air raid sirens, those rules fly out the window. Well... two thirds of them, anyway. A cult hit since its premiere at the New York City Fringe Festival in 2012, 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche lands on the Incarnate Word stage in a production directed by Chicago-based guest artist Clyde C. Compton. The raucous play sets up a retro dreamscape then uses the Red Scare as a lever to unbutton its buttoned-up cast of characters. Attendees beware — upon entering, audience members become de facto members of the Society, so be prepared to be considered a lesbian lady (if you aren’t already!) for the evening.
