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.
