The Clean House
by Sarah Ruhl

The Clean House

About the play:
“Would anybody like to hear a joke?”
Brazilian comedienne Matilde, a sassy young Latina newly arrived in the U.S. finds unsurprisingly no one will pay to hear rural jokes in Portuguese. She must clean for the upper class instead, wait for better things, hope to meet a soulmate, ponder what makes a good deathbed scene? Meanwhile her new employer’s household crumbles hilariously around them with the arrival of the husband’s mistress and a fetish cleaner-sister.

Funny, tender and emotionally rich, this is a hugely entertaining 2005 Pulitzer finalist play about the chaos of marriage, life and falling in love. With magical realism and romantic cliché, it ultimately finds humour even in sorrow.
