Events THE CLEAN HOUSE
BarnArts present THE CLEAN HOUSE by Sarah Ruhl at the Grange Theatre.
Directed by Abigail Bower and starring Rebecca Bailey, Elena Greenlee, Darby Hiebert, D. Gene Kraus & Marcela Williamson.
The Clean House is set in 'metaphysical Connecticut' – near NYC and near ‘the sea.’ Married doctors employ a Brazilian housekeeper, Matilde, who isn’t particularly interested in house cleaning, but prefers instead to focus on coming up with the perfect joke, meanwhile grieving her deceased parents. The particularities of Matilde overlap – with irony and gentleness – the privileged concerns and real struggles of her employers and those closest to them. The play touches on the interwoven humanity in loss and love and is ultimately a story of compassion (and the purpose of a good joke) told through the playful magical-realism of Sarah Ruhl.
