This extraordinary play takes place in a “metaphysical Connecticut.” Married doctors, Lane and Charles, have hired a housekeeper named Matilde, an aspiring comedian from Brazil who’s more interested in coming up with the perfect joke than in cleaning. Lane’s eccentric sister, Virginia, becomes fast friends with Matilde and takes over the cleaning while Matilde works on her jokes. Trouble comes when Charles reveals that he has found his soul mate. This theatrical and wildly funny play is a whimsical and poignant look at class, comedy, and the true nature of love. ~Samuel French
