    Choosing a Flaky Morsel for Armageddon Brunch

    Ben Brantley

    October 22, 2012: Let it be said henceforth that a quiche is nothing to sneeze at. Oh, I know, you’ve always thought of quiches as silly cuisine, fit to be served only at that silliest of meals, brunch. How wrong you were. A quiche is a mighty thing, as powerful and blessed as womanhood itself.

    2012 FringeNYC Roundup #8

    Dan Bacalzo & Chris Kompanek

    October 24, 2012: 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche, which will be returning as part of the FringeNYC Encores series at the SoHo Playhouse, has a wacky charm. Set in the 1950s, the satirical comedy details the extraordinary events that occur at an annual quiche breakfast held by the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein.

    Aurin Squire on "5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche" as presented by The New Colony in the 2012 New York Fringe Festival

    Aurin Squire

    October 24, 2012: 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche is a hilarious play in the vein of Charles Busch and Taylor Mac's hysterical ladies of propriety and manners. This apocalyptic and camp-y satire manages to be silly, socially-conscious, and well-layered. The story revolves around a 1956 Susan B. Anthony and Gertrude Stein society of 'widows.' Audience members are greeted at the door like they're members of the private club and given name tags with female names. The members are enamored with the concept of quiche and hold it up as a form of art. There are obvious queer sexual overtones throughout the piece and before the women can chow down on some prize-winning quiche an unexpected crisis occurs which traps everyone inside.

    5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche

    Adam Feldman

    October 24, 2012: “No men, no meat, all manners”: That’s the motto of the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein, a 1950s association of unmarried women who gather annually to sample one another’s custard pies. As the title of Evan Linder and Andrew Hobgood’s dark comedy suggests, the ladies’ pert geniality puts a pretty dress and lipstick on sexual identities that cannot be spoken of openly. (Their protective code word is “widows.”)

    5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche at the New Colony | Theater review

    Julienne Bilker

    October 24, 2012: If the phrase devised work inspires fear, confusion or eye-rolling, check your preconceptions at the door. Expanded after an award-winning run last year in Collaboraction’s Sketchbook X, this ensemble piece is smart, sharp and hysterically funny
