Dramatic Comedy

"Passionate. Show-stopping. Daringly over-the-top and impressively consistent in its delirious excess. "The Clean House" shines."--"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". 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 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.
