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

A note from director Rachel Rockwell
When I first saw Ragtime in one of its pre-Broadway tryouts more than a decade ago, I knew it was a show I wanted to direct. Epic in scale, this story weaves together such historical figures as Harry Houdini, Emma Goldman, JP Morgan, Henry Ford, Booker T. Washington and Evelyn Nesbit with three fictitious families, one white, one black and one immigrant. Its sweeping score and beautifully woven plot so accurately portray the human condition that more than a century later we see the characters’ struggles and triumphs still mirror our own.
