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

About the Ticket Supplier: Polarity Ensemble TheatrePolarity Ensemble Theatre brings together the yin and the yang. We marry tradition with innovation. Like the ancient Greeks, we create theatre to honor the spirit embodied in Dionysos, god of inspiration, wine and fertility, as well as of madness and destruction. We incorporate such elements as music, dance and ritual to create classic and brand new theatre that teases the intellect and stirs the soul.
Polarity Ensemble Theatre is a nonprofit theatre production and publishing company. Our goal is to create innovative productions of classic theatre as well as premieres of new works. When we produce new theatrical works, it is our intent to take such works first through a development process involving the playwright, a director and actors, and the community.
As a literary organization, we intend to develop and publish works of fiction and poetry as well as new plays and adaptations. In all cases, we will present public performances in conjunction with our publishing efforts.
