Clean House

Stirling Players is proud to present Sarah Ruhl’s “The Clean House”.  The play is a quirky, romantic “dramedy” centred around Matilde, a Brazilian woman who’s wound up a cleaner instead of a comedienne.   The Clean House was a finalist for the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.  Sarah Ruhl’s script weaves together the frayed edges of conflicting lives with whimsy and wisdom.

Matilde is Lane’s cleaner, but her dream is to be a comedienne.  Lane is a doctor for a very important hospital and is married to Charles, also a doctor.  Virginia is Lane’s sister, an unfulfilled housewife who loves nothing more than to clean.  Matilda and Virginia cook up a plan to keep Lane’s house clean, while Matilde works on the perfect joke.  All is going perfectly until they find a pair of panties that definitely do not belong to Lane.  It turns out Charles is having an affair with Ana, a free-spirited woman who’s been diagnosed with cancer.

What happens next is an honest and yet quirky portrayal of life, love, freedom and loss with four very different women facing four very different futures.

Showcasing the talents of Julie Quick as Ana, Jo Pugh as Lane, Jenny Penny as Virginia and introducing Andrea Freitas as Matilde, and featuring Peter Davies as Charles this cast will bring to life the funny, tender, deadpan soap and penetrating wisdom that is “The Clean House”

A show that will make you laugh, cry, and crave apples.
