July 16 – 31st, 2021

Written by Sarah Ruhl 
Directed by Sophie Hanley
Produced by Feargus Manning & Adam O'Brien
 

What would you do if the maid you hired to clean your house didn’t like cleaning? What if she spent her days working out her comic bits – in Portuguese? And what if you discovered that your sister secretly cleaned your house instead? This original, funny, and ultimately profound comedy will charm and delight with its quirky humor and deep compassion for the human condition. Discover the magic of The Clean House.

 

Winner of the 2004 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, awarded annually to the best English-language play written by a woman, and a Pulitzer Prize finalist, The Clean House has received glowing reviews. Variety called the play a “wondrously mad and moving work” and Charles Isherwood of The New York Times dubbed it a deeply romantic comedy, “visionary, tinged with fantasy, extravagant in feeling, maybe a little nuts.”
