For the first 15 minutes of 5 Lesbians Eating A Quiche , the Fringe show currently enjoying a run at the SoHo Playhouse , we were a little worried that we were watching a one-trick pony with a great name. Here we were, at the annual quiche breakfast of the "Susan B Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein" and here were five women who really, really like their quiches. Except maybe, just maybe, when these gals say quiche they really mean vagina? But then, as they say, it got better. Writers Evan Linder and Andrew Hobgood could have just kept their show a campy little thing about repressed "widows" in America. No meat.

Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein — a society in which the audience are active participants. Whilst the meeting starts like any other, the looming threat of a Communist invasion and the disclosure of a few secrets proves to cause carnage — though fret not, I can safely guarantee both lesbians and baked goods. Have you approached the show differently from its previous format, or have you maintained the spirit of the original by trying to keep it as similar as possible? The Gala is, of course, a massive space and so adaptation-wise our efforts have been geared towards making it bigger and better, both in terms of set and the play itself.
