Matilde (Sullivan Mackintosh), a Portuguese maid, remembers a joyful childhood with her parents (David Dye and Alison Fitts), while her employer, Lane (Kathleen Morrow, right) listens, in the staged reading of “The Clean House,” running June 21-22 at Columbia Center for the Arts.
Also in the cast is Mary Ann Pauline. Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Sarah Ruhl’s comedy takes place in the home of a married couple who are both doctors. They have hired Matilde, an aspiring comedian who’s more interested in writing the “perfect joke” than cleaning house.
Virginia lends a hand with her cleaning, and her muse, and discoveries, both humorous and touching, are made. Director Tom Burns calls it “a magical and mystical play.” Admission is $5 at the door; the show starts at 7:30 p.m.
