Took a friend as part of her retroactive birthday gift and we throughly enjoyed the frenzied and high-energy hijinks of the entire cast. Being a woman of "a certain age", I can remember the fear and subsequent misguided arrangements all of America was going through during the '50s to prepare for what we thought was going to be an inevidible nuclear attack on our country. Couple that with the hysteria of five women desperately trying to hide their lesbianism from not only society but also even from themselves, and you have the working premise of "5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche" in a nutshell!
In 1956 the “Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein” are celebrating their annual quiche breakfast when a nuclear attack forces them down into an isolated bomb shelter. What follows is an outrageous comedy about repressed desire, food politics and warm-blooded Cold War survival.
