“If you do not clean: how do you know if you’ve made any progress in life?”

Two powerful plays that find the humor in our most human experiences: life, death, lust, and jealousy. Performed in repertory, these two productions play off each other beautifully. The Clean House deals with death, the importance of laughter, and a woman’s relationship with her husband’s lover. Dirt follows a charming woman through the night she didn’t know would be her last – from dinner to dust.
