Synopsis  |  Table of Contents
“Passionate. Show-stopping. Daringly over-the-top and impressively consistent in its delirious excess. The Clean House shines.” — The New Haven Advocate
 
The Clean House is not, by any means, a traditional boy-meets-girl story. In fact disease, death and dirt are among the subjects it addresses. This comedy is romantic, deeply so, but in the more arcane sense of the word: visionary, tinged with fantasy, extravagant in feeling, maybe a little nuts.” — The New York Times
 
“Touching, inventive, invigoratingly compact and luminously liquid, Eurydice reframes the ancient myth of ill-fated love to focus not on the bereaved musician but on his dead bride — and on her struggle with love beyond the grave.” — San Francisco Chronicle
 
This volume is the first publication of Sarah Ruhl, “a playwright with a unique comic voice, perspective and sense of theater,” (Variety) who is fast leaving her mark on the American stage. In the award-winning The Clean House — a play of uncommon romance and uncommon comedy — a maid who hates cleaning dreams about creating the perfect joke, while a doctor who treats cancer leaves his heart inside one of his patients. This volume also includes Eurydice, Ruhl’s reinvention of the tragic Greek tale of love and loss; Late, a cowboy song and Melancholy Play.
