Previously Posted: Sexy Laundry, Michele Riml’s worldwide hit comedy about an ordinary couple with a less-than-ordinary overnight bag, receives its UK premiere at the Tabard Theatre.

Directed by Phoebe Barran, who also directed Tryst at the Tabard Theatre last year, it runs from Wednesday, October 31 to Sunday, November 25, 2018.

Checking into a trendy spa hotel, Alice and Henry are on a mission; to jump start their 25-year marriage. Time has taken its toll – so have kids, stress and gravity. Hoping to rekindle their flagging sex life, Alice and Henry stumble through their fantasies, finding that flaming the fires of passion is not as simple as making a hotel reservation.

Can they embrace all the wild suggestions from their marriage-saving quick start guide? What develops is a laugh-out-loud romantic comedy as the couple discover themselves and their marriage all over again.

Sexy Laundry, a poignant and hilarious look at the up and downs of love, marriage and the bedroom, has been a huge hit in the US, Canada, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Slovenia, Germany, Mexico, and Iceland, and in Poland it continues to run in rep with over 300 performances.

The cast comprises Felicity Duncan (Rosie in Mamma Mia! International tour, Anyone Can Whistle and Lear, Union Theatre) and Nick Raggett (Pie in the Sky, The Sins, Missing, The Fear, all on TV).

Michele Riml is an award-winning playwright from Vancouver, British Columbia. Her other plays include RAGE – winner of the 2005 Sydney Risk prize for Outstanding Original Play, as well as the Jessie Richardson Award for Outstanding Theatre Production – Miss Teen, Under The Influence and the critically acclaimed comedy Poster Boys, which had its world premiere at The Arts Club Theatre in Vancouver in 2008. That same year, Riml was nominated for the Siminovich Prize in Theatre, Canada’s largest theatre prize.

Tickets: From £16. To book, call the box office on 020 8995 6035 or visit tabardtheatre.co.uk/.

The world premiere of See Me For Myself continues at the Tabard Theatre until October 27, 2018.
