The Clean House

Invite

April 29 – June 4, 2006 In the Albert
Approximate running time: 2 hours

The Clean House is a wryly funny, deeply moving play that begs the question: What really IS important in life?

Mathilda is depressed. She doesn’t want to clean, she wants to tell jokes. In Portuguese.  Problem is, she’s Lynn’s live-in maid. And all Lynn wants is a clean house. She’s got everything else: a husband who’s a successful surgeon and her own busy career as a doctor. Or so she thinks. Her husband finds his soulmate in one of his patients, and moves out of Lynn’s house—which, by the way, is now clean because Lynn’s sister Virginia has been cleaning it on the sly. The New York Times calls Sara Ruhl  “a provocative new theatrical voice” and The Clean House “visionary.”
