Clean House final sm

The Clean House

by Sarah Ruhl

directed by Sam Chittenden


In a ‘metaphysical Sussex', doctors Lane and Charles have hired Brazilian Matilde to clean their house, but she’s more interested in jokes. Happily, Lane’s sister Victoria loves to clean! Meanwhile, Charles has a confession about the charismatic Ana.

Dreamlike and poetic, yet acerbic and very funny, The Clean House blends comedy, death, opera, surgery,apple picking and knickers in a cocktail of magic realism. It is a beautiful play about love, death, laughter and the messiness of life, and is NVT’s entry for the Drama Awards. Que vai ser incrível !!!
