About This Show

What is it about Mr. Clean anyway? Is it the premature earring? The arrogant grin? The way he’s all buffed up when all he does is take out the shmutts? Deb Margolin’s new play Why Cleaning Fails visits the lives of six characters for a ludicrous yet lyrical peek at the etiology of the Lady Macbeth complex, the way we are all tyrannized by scraps of paper, and at the precious, personal beauty of one’s own messes.
