Ed and I are always SOOOOO impressed by the theatrical productions put on here in Penticton and Michele Riml’s ‘Sexy Laundry’ was no exception.
Starring Eric Hanston (Henry) and Jeanne Wnuk (Alice) and directed by Ed Schneider, Sexy Laundry had us roaring with laughter almost throughout.
Sexy Laundry is a one act, 90-minute play set in an upscale hotel room that Alice has rented for the weekend in hopes of reconnecting with her husband. She’s brought a well-worn copy of Sex for Dummies with her and tries to encourage Henry to participate in some of the exercises recommended in the book.
Henry, who doesn’t see a problem with their relationship, is reluctant to participate however and carps about the hotel’s shortcomings instead.
The results are absolutely hilarious. Henry’s dance scene had me laughing so hard there were tears rolling down my face.
If you happen to be in Penticton, this play is a must-see. Sexy Laundry plays at The Cannery Stage on Thursday, Friday, Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. until Aug. 2nd, 2008. Tickets for this Many Hats Theatre Company production are available at the Can Coffee Company, 1475 Fairview Road, Penticton or can be reserved by phone at 250-493-3044 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 250-493-3044 end_of_the_skype_highlighting (no credit card required.)
