If the title of this play alone isn’t enough to convince you to go, you’re not entirely a lost cause; there is so much more going on here than what’s on the tin. Granted, five self-described “widows” (sure, Jan) do get together to eat a few quiches, but consider: It’s Cold War 1956, and breakfast may be served with a nice big helping of nuclear winter. This absurdist play about the five board members of the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein goes off the rails fast, and what begins as an annual quiche competition turns into a clusterf*ck of confessed feelings and discovered secrets that might be more explosive than the literal bomb the Communists may drop outside the club’s community center.
