5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche

Last week 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche played as the late show in Corpus Playroom. I met up with the cast just before their last performance and together we staged some photos from the play. After the play finished we did a few more photos before calling it a night. Here is a glimpse from the play.

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?

In four years do you think anyone is going to care if we’re lesbians or not? It will be 1960. We could probably all get married if we wanted to!

‘No men. No meat. All manners.’

‘We are the Susan B Anthony society, for the sisters of Gertrude Stein, we are a strong and vibrant society together til the end of all time.’

The egg is the closest to the lord Jesus Christ that a piece of food can get.
