About the play
After premiering at the Arts Club in 2005, Michele Riml's romantic comedy has gone on to become an international hit. In Sexy Laundry, Henry and Alice are a middle-aged couple coming to grips with their lacklustre sex life. To rekindle some of the magic in their 25-year marriage, they go on a naughty two-day retreat to a boutique hotel, only to find out that when the clothes come off, so do the gloves. Contains strong language and mature content.

To promote social distancing, we will offer two entrance times for each event. Choose your entrance time during ticket purchase.

The Arts Club is taking many precautions, including the following, to ensure your safety at this event:

  • Limiting the number of patrons to 50
  • Staggering theatre entrance times
  • Assigning seats to maintain distance between households
  • Disinfecting the theatre
  • Providing hand-sanitizing stations
  • Providing complimentary handmade Arts Club masks
