Matilde, an earthy young Brazilian housekeeper, would rather be onstage delivering comic lines than wielding a feather duster for her employer, an uptight doctor named Lane. Along with her frustrations about her messy home, Lane discovers she’s about to lose her surgeon-husband to his 67-year-old Argentinian breast cancer patient. Thrown into the mix are a loopy quest to find a healing yew tree in Alaska, an extended dirty joke told in Portuguese, and a sponge-wielding sister who finds scrubbing bathrooms therapeutic.
This whimsical comedy is directed by Lean Ensemble Theater’s Blake White and features ensemble member Jenny Zmarzly along with Taylor Harvey, Karin de la Penha, Carolyn Popp and Ryan K. Bailer.
Talkbacks with Lean Ensemble cast and crew follow each performance.
