Incarnate Word Theatre Serves Up the Absurdist Comedy ‘5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche’

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. $7-$12, 7pm Wed, Apr. 19 & Thu, Apr. 20, 8pm Sat, Apr. 22, University of the Incarnate Word, Cheever Theatre, 4301 Broadway, (210) 829-3810,
