KNAU interview with cast of “5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche”

Theatrikos Presents the Hilarious Eggstravaganza 5 Lesbians Eating A Quiche

After a pandemic induced three year hiatus, this estrogen soaked comedy marks the return of Theatrikos’ grittier small scale traveling studio series,

Opening June 9 – 25

FLAGSTAFF, Arizona. (May 31, 2023) Theatrikos brings Andrew Hobgood and Even Linder’s crazy comedy 5 Lesbians Eating A Quiche to the Flagstaff stage.  Hold on to your quiches! It’s 1956 and the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein are having their annual quiche breakfast. A tasty recipe of hysterical laughs, sexual innuendos, unsuccessful repressions and delicious discoveries.

“Beneath the innuendo and hysteria of Five Lesbians Eating a Quiche lies a touching story of sisterhood, self-acceptance, and strength in the face of adversity. This cast does a brilliant job of bringing this story and these characters to life,” said director Michael Rulon.  “Though this show is set in 1956, the setting resonates heavily with the present day. Amid fear and paranoia, the five characters in this play find strength, hope, and sisterhood. Oh, and they eat quiche.”

“After a three-year pandemic induced absence, this show marks the return of Theatrikos’ Studio Series shows. Studio Series are smaller scale, amazing, sometimes gritty, frequently inspiring, cutting-edge shows,” said Theatrikos Executive Director Chris Verrill.  5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche is all this and more.

Studio Series shows’ tickets prices half Theatrikos’ usual ticket prices; $12 instead of $24.  5 Lesbians is a 75 minute one act show.  Masks and proof of vaccination are no longer required at Theatrikos.  But still recommended.  Concessions are open and we’re back to doing our opening night receptions.
