Smart Bets: The Clean House

Dirty laundry is at the center of the Sarah Ruhl-penned comedy, The Clean House. The “comic and surreal theater piece blends fantasy and reality to integrate conflicts of gender, class and the true nature of love,” says a press release about the show. It will launch the fourth season of Different Strokes Performing Arts Collective. In the play, “Doctors Lane and Charles have hired a housekeeper named Matilde, who's too depressed to clean and more interested in coming up with the perfect joke anyway. Lane’s sister, Virginia, who's just nuts about housecleaning, meets and becomes fast friends with Matilde, offering to take over the cleaning while Matilde works on her jokes.” Peter Millis, Althea Gonzalez, Kate Brandao, Kelly Christianson and Sonia Rose D’Andrea star. The play runs Feb. 6-22 at The BeBe Theatre. Shows on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, at 7:30. $15/$18. Photo courtesy of Different Strokes
