Launderette is a short, witty, dance eruption, in which Jenny Ballantyne momentarily forgets and rejects the behavioral expectations of a married woman and mother in the 1960s. After one final straw in an era of discrimination and prejudice, Jenny twists, hitchhikes and mash potatoes herself into a frenzy of wah-wahs, bass and Hendrix fire.
