By Frederick Lonsdale
Directed by Jason Compton
"If Richard meets you in this house, there will be a very unpleasant scene!" - Margaret
"Had I been a smaller man, I should still have loved you, but I should have settled it by correspondence." - Ernest
When a dashing rival seduces Richard Sones' wife, Sones doesn't write a poem, take up dance, or hit the gym. He brings a prostitute home for dinner. Hilarity ensues.
Falconbridge Players presents a "highly varnished comedy about upper class sin": Spring Cleaning by Frederick Lonsdale. Never before seen in Wisconsin, this staged reading of the 1925 adulterous comedy features:
- Top-notch barbs and jabs!
- An awkward dinner party!
- The anxiety of the world before community property and joint custody made marriage and divorce paint-by-numbers affairs! (If you'll pardon the pun.)
(we're sure there will still be PHMDC protocols and we're sure you'll follow them)
Produced by Falconbridge Players at Arts + Literature Laboratory, 111 S Livingston St, Madison WI
