About the event
ELGbtq+ and Unitarian Universalist Church of Elgin are partnering to present 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche, a play brought to you by Mosaic Players - a traveling theatre troupe whose work embraces social justice, human rights, and equality. 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche is a scintillating satire of women's roles in the 1950s, enlisting its characters in a caricature of the sexism, heterosexism, consumerism, and Communism exuberant in the era. Come join us for this absurdly adorable and unapologetic declaration of lesbi-independence!
Eggers Can't Be Choosers -- Or Can They?
Lucy Ricardo: Did you ever wish there was something else to marry besides men?
Ethel Mertz: Often.
They really were pioneer women, those two, and not just because of the accidental advocating they did for marriage equality.
In the 1950s, women were cruisin' for a…well, choosin', and Lucy and Ethel delicately defended the idea that women should have their voices and choices respected. Well, who better to take our LGBT-cue from than a couple of intrepid and innovative gal pals?
Mosaic Players has chosen to present a screwball comedy that's zippier than a conveyor belt whipping nuggets of chocolate past a panicky redhead and her hapless sidekick, 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche.
The performance will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Elgin, with a cast Q&A to follow and snacks provided!
$10 suggested donation, and we encourage dressing in 1950s attire to fit the theme!
