The Clean House (Alumnae Theatre)

Auditions: January 14, 15, 16  2017

Callbacks:  January 22nd, 2017

The production team is now accepting submissions for the final show in The Alumnae Theatre’s 2016/2017 season.

This runner-up for the Pulitzer prize takes place inside the home of married doctors whose young Brazilian cleaning lady is fixated on creating the perfect joke. Their strict household unravels when the husband falls in love with one of his patients.

This is Sarah Ruhl at her best; The Clean House is a fast-paced, fearlessly honest, and wildly funny look at class, comedy and the nature of love.
