It’s 1956 and The Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein are having their annual quiche breakfast. As the assembled “widows” await the announcement of the society's prize-winning quiche, the atomic bomb sirens sound! Has the Communist threat come to pass? How will the “widows” respond as their idyllic town and lifestyle faces attacks? Winner of the 2012 NYC International Fringe Festival as Best Overall Production, 5 Lesbians Eating A Quiche is a tasty recipe of hysterical laughs, sexual innuendoes, unsuccessful repressions, and delicious discoveries.

Produced by the Town and Gown Theatre and directed by theatre Manager Karl Steele.

★★★★ The Reviews Hub – “a hilarious evening full of non-stop jokes”
★★★★ West End Best Friend – “"A riotous romp of a show not to be missed”
★★★★ The Cambridge Critique – “an audacious mix of Bake off and Dr Strangelove”

    Loved it, so we'll acted. Lots of issues raised in one short play, especially the deaf issues. Great use of minimum props and the backdrop comments were appropriate and amusing. Well done, would certainly recommend to others.

    Earwig was a delightful bit of proper grow-up storytelling. Great performances, beautifully designed and wonderfully quirky. We enjoyed it very much.
