Theater, Plays


Jan 27 - Feb 12, 2017

Written by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Steven David Martin

Lane and Charles hire a housekeeper named Matilde, an aspiring comedian from Brazil who's more interested in coming up with the perfect joke than in housecleaning. Matilde becomes fast friends with Lane’s sister Virginia, who takes over the cleaning while Matilde works on her jokes. This beautifully theatrical play mixes humor and heartbreak into a whimsical and poignant look at class, comedy and the true nature of love.

“The perfect joke makes you forget about your life. The perfect joke makes you remember about your life.”.
