Now Showing: "The Clean House"
Humor can be serious business—if it’s not too serious. Take another look at comedy, love, and domestic chores in the show that catapulted Sarah Ruhl to the forefront of contemporary American playwrights. "Fresh, funny ... a memorable play, imbued with a melancholy but somehow comforting philosophy: that the messes and disappointments of life are as much a part of its beauty as romantic love and chocolate ice cream, and a perfect punch line can be as sublime as the most wrenchingly lovely aria." - The New York Times. Performance dates for "The Clean House" by Sarah Ruhl are Dec. 4-6 and Dec. 10-12, 2015, with a preview performance on Dec. 2. Tickets go on sale. Nov. 23. Learn more.
