Love, dirt and the perfect joke.
An award-winning, sparkling comedy by an exciting new American playwright, Sarah Ruhl.
Worlds collide in a pristine living room as four women and one man confront the mess and beauty of their own lives. Lane has got everything - a successful surgeon for a husband and her own busy career as a doctor - but all she wants is a clean house. Matilde, her young cleaner from Brazil, hates to clean, instead preferring to dream up the perfect joke. But Lane's sister Virginia loves cleaning and comes to a secret arrangement with Matilde.
Meanwhile, Lane's hunband Charles becomes enchanted by one of his patients, the free-spirited Ana who casts a surreal spell over the clean house.
Starring: Michele Amas, Erin Banks, Jude Gibson, Alan Lovell and Jane Waddell
