The Clean House
July 19 - July 29 | Main Stage
2005 PULITZER PRIZE FINALIST
Two-time Tony Award nominee Jayne Atkinson and Tony Award nominee Jessica Hecht leads the cast in this heartfelt comedy by Pulitzer Prize finalist Sarah Ruhl. Lane (Atkinson), an accomplished physician, discovers that her sister Virginia (Hecht) — not her Brazilian housekeeper Matilde (Guenia Lemos) — has been cleaning her home every day. Though never close, suddenly the sisters find themselves enmeshed in each other’s lives and in Matilde’s great passion for Portuguese jokes. Tony Award winner Rebecca Taichman directs this expressive and lyrical comedy about learning to live with life’s mess.
The Clean House runs approximately 2 hours, including one 15-minute intermission.
