5 lesbians Eating Quiche

A saucy romp by Evan Linder and Andrew Hobgood

Hilarious send-up of 1950s cold war anxiety and kitsch culture! “No men, no meat, all manners”

Five women assemble in a church basement for the 1956 annual meeting of the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein’s annual quiche breakfast. The normally idyllic gathering is upended when the Society’s matriarchs realize that an atom bomb may be falling on their fair city. As fears are confronted and confessions fly, the chipper ladies meet the Red Menace head on, firm in their commitment that the quiche is a mighty thing and that one must “respect the egg.” It’s all delightfully weird, baking social satire into outlandish comedy. “It is silly, it is rude, it is laugh-out-loud funny." - Atlanta Theater Buzz. "Gut-busting Perfection! What's funnier than funny? 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche!”- ChicagoNow

If this were a move, we think it would be rated “PG-13 rated” for mature content

American Buffalo

Explosive Drama by David Mamet

Three men pursue their distorted view of the American Dream

This fast paced drama is all aggression and testosterone, with characters wielding words like weapons. During one long day in a run–down junk shop, three men of great ambition and low morals plan a heist of a customer’s valuable coin. When the con goes awry, it’s every man for himself, pawns caught up in their own game of last-chance, dead-end, empty pipe dreams. A modern masterpiece of gritty humor.

If this were a movie, we think it would be rated “R” for strong language


2016: January 29, 30, 31; February 4, 5, 6, 7; Feb. 11, 12, 13, 14; Feb. 18, 19, 20, 21; Feb. 25, 26, 27, 28

Snowdance 2016

12th Anniversary Festival!

Competition of Original Comedies

The hit playwriting competition draws entries from around the globe. Judges choose the best to produce. Then, in the ultimate interactive experience, the audience votes on who should win the cash prize. It’s original comedy plus OOHPs’ signature hijinks between plays. Utah has Sundance; Racine has Snowdance! A great reason for season tickets – this popular event sells out.

These plays are not yet rated; they are not yet written! “R-rated” words or themes may be included.


April 8, 9, 10; 15, 16, 17; 22, 23, 24

Good People

Tough and tender dramedy by David Lindsay-Abaire

An affectionate look at the “Haves,” the “Have Nots,” and the unshakable hope that arises from having next to nothing

Margie Walsh can’t catch a break. Laid off from her job at the local dollar store, Margie seeks out the one who got away – both from the neighborhood and from her. Finding herself in the suburbs and out of her element, she realizes the power a secret from the past holds. From Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire, Good People looks at the dangerous consequences of choosing to hold on to the past. Is opportunity granted or earned?

If this were a movie, we think it would be rated “PG-13” for some adult language.
