WaterTower Theatre will present the Michele Rimil comedy, Sexy Laundry, part of the new Discover Series in the Studio Theatre.
After 25 years of “bliss” Alice and Henry are having marital problems. Alice has decided to re-kindle the flame of their dormant love life with a weekend in an upscale swanky hotel room. “The L is the hottest new hotel in the city. It’s a synthesis of Eastern design and western sensibility,” she informs Henry.
And to boost the odds, she has brought along a copy of Sex for Dummies and a willingness to try things. Henry’s brought only his bad attitude, announcing that “nothing’s as good as it could be—that’s life!” He gazes at the book with suspicion and dread.
Alice and Henry snipe at and harangue each other through a rehash of marital ruts and potholes that have left them both spiritually spent. They share their erotic fantasies, exchange recriminations and take turns confessing the details of their personal mid-life crises as the play moves from comic, to serious, and back again.
In Sexy Laundry, Henry and Alice’s touching and hilarious rediscovery of themselves and the strength of their marriage resonates with audiences of all ages.
