Sexy Laundry

by Michele Riml

October 4, 5, 11, 12,13

After twenty-five years of marriage, the emergence of love handles and receding hairlines, Alice and Henry have hit a physical plateau. With a copy of Sex for Dummies in hand Alice convinces Henry into a weekend of alone time in the hopes of seducing him and unearthing her inner vixen. Henry, however, wants to keep things the way they are—comfortable and easy. Exploring every fantasy from leather to lace, Alice and Henry portray every couple’s desire to grow together but maintain individuality. 

 

Funny, lovable and true. Award winning Vancouver playwright Michele Riml hits all the right spots with Sexy Laundry—yes, all the spots.

 He’s back! One boy. One holiday wish. And a world that seems to be conspiring to make certain it doesn’t come true. The record-breaking show returns to the stage in all its pink-bunny-suit, glowing-leg-lamp, triple-dog-daring glory. The perfect holiday treat for the entire family.

Humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas.
