|The Clean House|
Megan Hadley, Henri Canino, Ashley Carlisle
The Clean House is a whimsical, romantic play centred on Matilde, a Brazilian cleaning woman who would rather be a comedian. This comic drama mixes fantasy and reality as it tells the story of five distinctive characters. Sarah Ruhl’s extraordinary play, embracing “the mess of love and life”, is theatrical, funny and philosophical.
At the 2015 WODL Festival in Owen Sound, Theatre Sarnia won the D. Park Jameson Award for Best Production, as well as Performance by a Female in a Leading Role (Henri Canino as Virginia), an Adjudicator’s Award for a particularly humourous performance (Ashley Carlisle as Mathilde) and Best Coordinated Production, with additional nominations for Outstanding Technical Production and Outstanding Ensemble Work.
