Theatre Travels is currently looking to cast five roles for our production of Andrew Hobgood and Evan Linder's 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche, to be performed as part of the 2021 Mardi Gras Festival. The show will be performed 25 - 27 February, 2021.
5 LESBIANS EATING A QUICHE
5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche, co-written by Andrew Hobgood and Evan Linder finds five women assembled in a church basement for the 1956 annual meeting of the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein's annual quiche breakfast. The normally idyllic gathering, where the motto is "no men, no meat, all manners," is upended when the Society's matriarchs must confront the startling revelation that an atom bomb may be falling on their fair city. As fears are confronted and confessions fly, the chipper ladies stay firm in their commitment that the quiche is a mighty thing and that one must "respect the egg."
Lulie Stanwyck, 20-50 (F). Society President. American accent required.
Wren Robin, 20-50 (F). Events Chairwoman and one of the older members of the ensemble. American accent required.
Veronica “Vern” Schultz, 20-50 (F). Buildings and Grounds Chairwoman and one of the older members of the ensemble. American accent required.

Dale Prist, 20-30 (F). Historian and youngest in the ensemble. American accent required.
While all of the characters start as the traditional 1950s woman; prim, poised and proper, each slowly descends into madness and becomes more and more chaotic. We are looking for performers that have a strong sense of play and are comfortable with comedy and absurdist theatre.
