Airing Dirty Laundry
Soap operas are being cut from the daytime schedule as quickly as talk shows are being added.
While the television sudsers struggle, Calgary's live improvised soap is going strong in its 12th season. Dirty Laundry takes to the stage every Monday evening with the actors winging the storyline, trying to trip each other up to provoke drama and laughter. The characters are the same each week with a bonus guest star and, this season’s ancient Rome theme is consistent, but everything else is up for grabs. Like the daytime serials, you can show up every week or drop in occasionally and quickly catch up to the storyline.
Evil twins, torrid affairs and babies stolen at birth may or may not be included. —Jaelyn Molyneux
