The Spin Cycle This heart-warming three-person comedy pivots upon the return of a baby boomer daughter to her childhood home in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, in which her mother is still trying to do the live-in adult son’s laundry. As the sibling rivals squabble, and all three attempt to “spin” their shared history and tell the story from their individual points of view, they slowly confront one another’s limits, strengths, and the mother’s mortality. Through the hilarious twists and turns of THE SPIN CYCLE, the trials of the baby boomer generation are exposed and brought home to us in shared recognition. THE SPIN CYCLE, by David Rambo, is produced by BAS BLEU READERS’ THEATRE, directed by Amy Scholl, and features Frances Burns, L. Michael Scovel and Deb Note-Farwell.
