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

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

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.

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.
