5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche

Date: 2 Feb 2021

It’s 1956 and The Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein are having their annual quiche breakfast, where the motto is “no men, no meat, all manners”.

As the ‘widows’ await the announcement of the society’s prize-winning quiche, chaos strikes when the atomic bomb alarm sounds and threatens to end their beloved quiche breakfast. Is it a drill? Has the Communist threat come to pass? How will the widows respond if their idyllic town and lifestyle faces attack?

In the face of danger, who knows what you’ll learn about yourself or your fellow woman!

Rosie Niven (The Laramie Project, Revolt.She Said.Revolt Again) directs. Demitra Sealy, Dominique Purdue, Julia Pennisi, Nyssa Hamilton and Olivia Mortimer-Eade feature.
