Press
Chicago Tribune
"Subversively ribald 1950's homemaker spoof."
NewCity
"If Joe Eszterhas and Andrea Dworkin had been forced at gunpoint to collaborate on something they might have come up with this guiltiest of pleasures. A piece that shamelessly panders to straight-male lesbian fantasies and an unabashed shout-out to Sapphic sisterhood. Go figure."
Chicago Theater Addict
"The New Colony offers a riotous highpoint of the evening."
Chicago Theater Blog
"There are some standout pieces. The one that clearly stands out the most is Five Lesbians Eating a Quiche...it is the most refined piece of the festival. The script feels fully fleshed out, the actors are well aware of their characters and the comedic timing is impeccable...It has an aesthetic all its own that is so engaging I'd pay to see a full-length production."
Chicago Suntimes
"Beyond dreadful!"
