5 Lesbians eating a Quiche by Evan Lander and Andrew Hopgood



It’s 1956 and the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein are having their annual quiche breakfast. Will they be able to keep their cool when Communists threaten their idyllic town?


My thoughts

This is a very short play and would work well in a studio environment or as part of compilation of short plays.

The characters while having some funny moments, have no real background and there is very little development.

I do like the audience participation that is included as part of the plot and it is because of this that I think it would work better in a small studio than on a big stage.

As it is a play it is very hard to judge the overall comedy impact by simply reading it cold, however, in parts, just reading the dialogue made me laugh out loud.

I would really like to see this performed as I think it would be a lot more funny. I would go and see this if a company near me was doing it.

I gave this 3 out of 5* on Goodreads
