Five Lesbians Eating A Quiche POSTPONED Ulverstone Repertory Theatre Society Location: Leven Theatre, Ulverstone Map Five 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. As the assembled ‘widows’ await the announcement of the society's prize-winning quiche, the atomic bomb sirens sound! Has the Communist threat come to pass? How will the ‘widows’ respond as their idyllic town and lifestyle faces attacks?

Winner of the 2012 NYC International Fringe Festival as Best Overall Production, 5 Lesbians Eating A Quiche is a tasty recipe of hysterical laughs, sexual innuendoes, unsuccessful repressions, and delicious discoveries.

The Full Monty CANCELLED Devonport Choral Society Location: Devonport Paranaple Centre Map Full Monty
Six men … with nothing to lose … who dare to go … The Full Monty!

Based on the smash hit film, The Full Monty (a ten-time Tony nominee) is musical comedy at its best.

The show is filled with honest affection, engaging melodies and the most highly anticipated closing number of any show. With a fast-paced book by Terrence McNally (Ragtime, Catch Me If You Can) and high energy score by David Yazbek (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), this Broadway team have created a show that speaks to your core and celebrates the every-day man.

Set in Buffalo, New York, an unlikely group of unemployed men set out to reinvent themselves as an all-male strip group. What starts as a desperate money-making venture soon becomes a journey of self-discovery and friendship, learning that the whole is greater than the sum of their parts.

Directed by the highly successful team of Sid Sidebottom, Bronwyn Darvell and Elizabeth Viney, along with Musical Director Simon McNeair, The Full Monty is a heartfelt adventure wrapped in a hilarious night of entertainment.
