Sixth Avenue Town Hall Play Reading Series Presents 5 LESBIANS EATING A QUICHE Tonight
Sixth Avenue's Town Hall Back Room Reading Series has announced it will present 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche by Evan Linder and Andrew Hobgood at Akbar in Silver Lake. The play will be read one night only, tonight, October 14 at 8:00.
Directed by Brooke Seguin, the cast will include (in alphabetical order) Daisy Eagan, Lauren Flans, Celeste Pechous, Tara Perry, and Kimmy Shields. In 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche, it's 1956 and the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein are having their annual quiche breakfast. Will they be able to keep their cool when Communists threaten their idyllic town?
Sixth Avenue was founded by Adam Silver in 2011 with a focus on creating bold and boundary-pushing theatre experiences that continue the conversation long after the event. Past productions include the world premiere of William Nedved's Fact & Fiction directed by Dámaso Rodriguez, and the Los Angeles premiere of Adam Szymkowicz's Nerve directed by Michael Matthews.
Town Hall is Sixth Avenue's new monthly play reading series and will take place on the second Tuesday of every month at Akbar. Following 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche, readings are scheduled for November 11 and December 9 with more to be announced for 2015.
Akbar, Silver Lake's "neighborhood oasis," is located at 4356 W. Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. Admission is free, but reservations are suggested at www.6avenue.org.
