A large cast of dancers, actors, & singers with LOTS of fun character parts!!

Sarah Ruhl's THE CLEAN HOUSE is our second show, playing 11/6 - 11/21 in the Drury. Directed by Betty Diamond. By the author of DEAD MAN'S CELL PHONE and IN THE NEXT ROOM, OR THE VIBRATOR PLAY, a funny play that is a whimsical and poignant look at class, comedy, and the true nature of love.
