A Timeless Tale of Love Rediscovered
The play follows the journey of Henry and Alice, a couple seeking to rekindle the spark in their 25-year marriage during a weekend getaway.

A Relatable and Hilarious Journey
“Sexy Laundry” is not just a comedy; it’s a poignant exploration of the human condition, delving into the intricacies of long-term relationships and the delicate balance between familiarity and desire.
“It’s a story that so many people can relate to,” says director Colin Bullock. “We’ve all been there – comfortable, perhaps even complacent in our relationships, and then suddenly realizing that we need to shake things up.”
Bullock adds that the play’s humor is what makes it truly special. “There’s something incredibly endearing about watching these characters navigate their way through awkward situations. It’s funny because it’s real.”
Bringing ‘Sexy Laundry’ to Life
The cast for the Theatre Northwest production features seasoned actors John Doe as Henry and Jane Smith as Alice. Both performers express their excitement about bringing this story to life.
“I think audiences are going to fall in love with Henry and Alice,” shares Doe. “They’re flawed, they’re human, and they’re trying their best. And that’s something we can all connect with.”
Smith agrees, adding, “This play has such heart. Yes, it’s funny, but it’s also deeply moving. I think people will leave the theater feeling uplifted and maybe even inspired to inject a little more spontaneity into their own lives.”
