Get acquainted with the work of Sarah Ruhl, an astonishing up-and-coming playwright. The Clean House has already won the prestigious Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, awarded annually for the best English Language play written by a woman.

The Clean House redefines romantic comedy with its heartwarming and humorous look at life, love and family. Four women discover the power of the perfect joke, and along the way learn through laughter, tears, love and loss, that life’s beautiful messes should never be washed away.
