The production team at Alumnae Theatre is now accepting submissions for roles in:
The Clean House
by Sarah Ruhl
Director: Ali Joy Richardson
Producers: Laura Jabalee Johnston & Tabitha Keast
Performance dates: April 7-22, 2017
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.
