The year is 1956, and the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein is having its annual quiche breakfast. Daily life is calm and quiet, and excitement is kept to a minimum. However, there's an unexpected item on the agenda this year: the very real threat of atom bombs being dropped on their idyllic town. As the meeting adjourns to the bomb shelter, things take a turn for the worse. Cramped in a small space with the last quiche on Earth and the future uncertain, scandalous secrets come out and tensions -- sexual and otherwise -- rise among the women. Learn More

Being new to the whole theater scene. I actually went to see this performance as an assignment. Ironically I had to critique it for class. The actors throughout the performance, were energetic, full of happiness tho the scenario took place in a cold town that had not seen the sun in a very long time. The play itself tried to parallel a fairy tale with a twist with modern times, relatively speaking. Overall the acting was well performed, the stage and the use of the audience as props was quite funny and intriguing. Although the plot itself was confusing a bit and the need of my imagination took place. I would go again to see this performance. It made everyone laugh, gasp and sense their sad emotions. Thumbs up!
