Holland Productions presents the Boston premiere of The Mistakes Madeline Made, by Elizabeth Meriwether. Krista D'Agostino directs.
The play tells the story of a young girl, Edna, who develops Ablutophobia, the fear of bathing. Struggling with a soul-crushing job as a personal assistant and the traumatic death of her older brother, she wages a furious and funny war against all things complacent, pampered, and clean.
As Edna's smell starts to overwhelm her co-workers and many casual lovers, the play raises the questions: Is dirty living a political act? And is clean living even possible in these times of unrest? An unlikely story of love and dirty people.
On Monday, November 29 at 8 p.m., Holland Productions will present a special performance of The Mistakes Madeline Made, benefiting Dress for Success Boston. Dress for Success Boston promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
