The Clean House

What an AMAZING play!  Loved the writing (funny and layered and interesting without being depressing or laboured), fantastic acting (especially by Brooke Satchwell who plays a Brazilian cleaning lady who doesn't like to clean), great set, wonderful lighting and music.  Very impressive.  The main weakness, for me, lay in the characterisation of the only male in the show.  It was thin and shadowy, not interesting and strong like the female characters.  Overall, though, one of the best plays I've seen in a while.  And the rest of the audience loved it too!!
