5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche

By Evan Linder and Andrew Hobgood
“5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche” is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.


5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche is a short play by Evan Linder and Andrew Hobgood where the women of The Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein are stuck in a shelter after an atomic explosion in their town. Realizing they are the last people on Earth, they are forced to confront not only each other, but themselves. A comedy with an incredible amount of heart where through a fun, campy lens we are introduced to themes of loneliness, friendship, sisterhood, and of course the “magical, magnificent, egg.”

Director's Digest

The women of the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein get together every year to celebrate the thing that brings them all so much joy: quiche.

While on the surface it may seem all about the egg, it becomes apparent to both the characters and the audience that the annual quiche breakfast is about so much more than that. It’s about the bonds of community and fellowship in survival. Historically, queer people have had to build their own family and the widows of the SBASSGS are no different. In tough times, it’s good to always remember “We are once, twice, three times the lady when we’re standing arm in arm.

Larger than a queen-size bed!

On November 22, 1997 Chef Alain Marcotullio baked the largest quiche in history. It took 18 hours to bake and contained nearly 2,000 eggs, 156 pounds of bacon, and it was claimed the quiche was large enough to serve 125 people.
