The Clean House is a whimsical romantic comedy center on Brazilian housekeeper and aspiring comedian Matilde whose life becomes embroiled with sisters Lane and Virginia. Lane’s husband, Charles, and his newly-found soulmate, Ana. Premiering in 2005 The Clean House was described by Variety as a “wondrously mad and moving work” and by the New York Times as “visionary, tinged with fantasy, extravagant in feeling, maybe a little nuts.” Awarded the Susan Blackburn Prize given annually to the best English language play written by a woman, The Clean House was also a Pulitzer Prize finalist.
The Clean House at Santa Paula Theater Center features a cast of five with Javiera Torres as Matilde, Laurel Lyle as Lane, Sindy Mckay as Virginia, Paul Newman as Charles, and Carmen Saveiros as Ana. Larry Swerdlove directs, Leslie Nichols is the producer, and Megan Brister is stage managing.
