Lincoln Center Theater presents Sarah Ruhl's The Clean House, directed by Bill Rauch. The cast features Vanessa Aspillaga, Blair Brown, Jill Clayburgh, John Dossett, and Concetta Tomei.
Lane, a high powered-doctor, hires Matilde, a young Brazilian woman who hates to clean, as her housekeeper. Eventually, Lane's sister Virginia takes on the job, and Matilde concentrates on her true ambition: crafting the world's most perfect joke. Meanwhile, Lane's husband, Charles, leaves her for Anna, a free-spirited older woman.
Ruhl won the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for The Clean House; the play debuted at Yale Repertory Theatre, where it was directed by Rauch.
