Seeking Latin Actor for production of A CLEAN HOUSE

Valley Center Stage

About the project and the company

Valley Center Stage in North Bend, WA is doing a production of  A Clean House by Sarah Ruhl.

A whimsical and touching romantic comedy about love, loss, change and redemption, The Clean House takes place in what the author describes as ‘metaphysical Connecticut’, mostly in the home of a married couple, Lane and Charles, who are both doctors.  A serious career-oriented doctor, Lane has hired a quirky Brazilian maid, Matilde, who longs to be a comedienne, and is more interested in coming up with the perfect joke than cleaning. Virginia, Lane’s sister, loves to clean and becomes fast friends with Matilde. Tensions escalate when Lane’s husband, Charles, leaves her for his mistress, Ana, a passionate, older Argentinian woman upon whom he recently performed a mastectomy.

Award winning playwright Sarah Ruhl reminds us of what’s important in life, and that humor and beauty still enchant in the most unlikely places.

This posting is for the role of Ana only.
