Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize – A romantic comedy about loss, love, change and redemption, The Clean House is both whimsical and touching. 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. Lane is deserted by her husband, Charles, who leaves her for his mistress, Ana, a passionate, older Brazilian woman upon whom he recently performed a mastectomy. This enchanting play reminds us that there is humor and beauty to be find in life’s most unlikely messes.
