February 14th to 24th.
The Clean House – By Sarah Ruhl. A romantic comedy about loss, love, change and redemption, The Clean House (Pulitzer Prize finalist & winner of The Susan Smith Blackburn Prize) is a whimsical and touching work about the big themes of love, life, and death. A serious career-oriented doctor, Lane, has hired a quirky Brazilian maid. The only problem is that the maid, Matilde, hates to clean. Instead, she longs to be a comedienne. This funny, tender play has screwy poetry and penetrating wisdom, oddball humor, deadpan soap, operatic arias, fantasy, spirituality and a soaring sense of romance, reminding us that there is humour and beauty to be found in lifes most unlikely messes.
