Falconbridge Players presented a “highly varnished comedy about upper class sin”: Spring Cleaning by Frederick Lonsdale on November 23 2021 at 7 PM at Arts + Literature Laboratory, 111 S. Livingston St. in Madison. Never before seen in Wisconsin, this staged reading of the 1923 play 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.)
