August 30 - September 23 on
The Kitchen Theatre Company, downtown Ithaca's year-round professional theatre opens its 07-08 season with a comedy -- The Clean House by Sarah Ruhl. Love, death, disease, and dirt invade the tidy, unemotional life of a doctor, her adulterous husband, her sister, and her Brazilian housekeeper, who aspires to tell the funniest joke in the world. A play about embracing the chaos, knowing that the messes we make are only dust in the end. Important conversations happen in the Kitchen.
