The Clean HouseThe Clean House
by Sarah Ruhl

May 15 - June 6, 2009

Directed by Rhonda Clark

This fresh and funny play is imbued with a comforting philosophy that the messes and disappointments of life are as much a part of its beauty as romantic love and chocolate ice cream! Itís set in "metaphysical Connecticut" or, more specifically, the home of Lane and Charles, a married couple who are both doctors. Their new housekeeper, Matilde, is an aspiring comedian from Brazil more interested in coming up with the perfect joke than in house-cleaning. No matter. Laneís eccentric sister is nuts about house work, so she secretly scrubs while Matilde works on her jokes. Trouble comes when Laneís husband Charles reveals that he has found his soul mate in one of his patients.
