The company is producing the plays in repertory on alternating weekends from April 21 through May 20.

Dirt will be receiving its New England premiere at the CTC. “The exciting challenge of performing Dirt and The Clean House together is creating a set that can open up possibilities for each,” says lighting designer Maggie Cady. “The set will include actual dirt, which brings up a lot of images of nature – our embrace of it and our fights against it. Both plays tackle serious issues of life and death with humor Dirt follows a young woman through the day that she didn’t know would be her last as she tells the story of her demise and what it means for those left...
