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

Another strange and wonderful production from the Hypocrites! Emotional, frequently unsettling, and expertly performed. The progression through the 3 performance spaces was seamless and artistic for the performers and didn't feel like a big production moving the audience to new seating. Great show, highly recommended!
