ALICE AND Harry check into a hotel to spice up their sex life after 25 years of marriage in the Terrace Little Theatre’s dinner theatre production of Sexy Laundry.

Terrace Little Theatre airs its ‘sexy laundry’

COUPLES married 25 years and those who like a good laugh with a bit of a tearjerker will enjoy TLT's dinner theatre production.

COUPLES WHO have been married 25 years, or more, and those who like a good laugh with a bit of a tearjerker included will be able to relate to Terrace Little Theatre’s dinner theatre production, debuting on Valentine’s Day.

First time director Alan Weston chose the play after seeing a poster about it while in Prince George.

The title caught his eye: Sexy Laundry.

TLT didn’t have anyone to direct a dinner theatre last year so Weston thought he should step up and direct for his first time.

“I think the title says it,” said Weston.

Sexy Laundry is a very funny play but also has serious moments that will move the audience.

People married more than 25 years can relate to it, he said.

“I still get misty eyes,” said stage manager Julie Jacobs, adding that’s even though she’s seen the play rehearsals multiple times.

Weston always had actors Cheryl Spencer and John Dafoe in mind for the play.

And they’re definitely the best for the roles considering their commitment to the characters and the play, he said.

In early rehearsals, often actors will be carrying the script with them and referring to it a lot, but not Spencer and Dafoe.

“That didn’t happen even once. Not even at first,” Weston said.

The play, by Michele Riml, is about a married middle-age couple, Alice and Henry, who have been married for 25 years and find their relationship waning.

Alice decides to spice up their stale relationship by booking them into a posh hotel to revive their sex life.

Spencer says some parts of the character are like her. Overall, it’s a fun role whether it’s the funny parts or the serious parts.

Dafoe says the fun is also is working with a small group – he and Spencer are the only characters.

They started rehearsals with not even a bed to lay on; only two upside down garbage cans to take the place of the bed, which required some imagination.

For the last three weeks, the bed has been part of the rehearsal with them.

Sexy Laundry opens Valentine’s Day at the Skeena Golf and Country Club, starting with dinner. For more details see City Scene on page 12.
